@amberwingart Okay this time I did... A Gradient pass on Screen of a bright orange from bottom to half way. This is to simulate the light coming from the bottom and fading out above him. A Gradient pass on Multiply in a dark blue from top to half way. I erased the edges from the outer oval where it had become blue to match the warm bottom of the oval background I did some bright circular gradients in a light blue on the bluebird. And finally I selected the inner back ground and turned the contrast down to match the top darkness to give the illusion of going back. I think the last part was the most effective. You could do this with a dark glaze in your painting. I would test it on some canvas paper first though. I could make the foliage under his arm more green, but you get the gist...
