To take a look at something again, to rewind. I started a American Kestrel as a demonstration piece in July at the NOMA gallery.

I wanted to add more detail to the body of the bird, brighten the whites and make the blacks darker.

This is my rewind, going back into a piece and making adjustments. There are times when those adjustments may not have been the improvement you had in mind but I think I like this this version better.
