Sunlit San Miguel

This is the same image: actually the same painting as the last San Miguel painting, now, with a new knife-layer of paint. The goal today was to "light" the scene. My sister suggested that the last little painting expressed "the rainy season" because of it cool greys. To accomplish "light" in this painting, I studied paintings that successfully "glow" by Kim English and David Cheifetz and made small color studies to figure it out. What do you think, is this one "sunnier"?
