problems with purple

Purple is an interesting colour to work with. This painting was under-painted in purple and the top photo shows what it looked like when I first finished it. When I looked at the photo, I realized that I didn't like the purple-ish cast of the sand in the foreground. I repainted it with a warmer colour.

Purple doesn't always show up until you put the painting in daylight. Something about my studio lights makes it look less noticeable. I photograph my paintings outdoors so that's when the dreaded purple sometimes shows up too strong.

The painting is called "Soft Sea Breezes" 24 x 36" acrylic.
