Reproductions make you not see correctly. It is impossible to make this painting look as good as it does in front of me. The saturated reds are saturated, yes, but not to the extent that some forms glow fire red like they do here. This painting will finish itself tomorrow. The man's hand on the woman's arm requires correction, then there is a bit more decision making, e.g. how far do I want to go with details, like the woman's hair?
