"Sierra Spring" ©

If you go back a few days I painted a small (5" X 7") study of this scene. Some changes have been made and now that it's up on the computer screen I see more to do but it's on it's way to being a painting. It's just a bit to "organized", and landscapes in general never are. Another way to say it is, random is much more appealing.

Oil on Canvas, 20" X 24"

It is lovely. I am not sure what you still need to do to it!

Hi! I am glad to meet you at our art show at the Hyatt Valencia yesterday. This morning while waiting, I look at your art blog.
I enjoyed looking at some of your landscape paintings yesterday and enjoy looking at many more now. Best wishes on your art career and hope to get to know you more.
Will visit your blog again.

LSaeta, thanks and I could go on for days on what I will do to this piece but in general here is some of my thoughts. There needs to be an easier transitition between the 3 largest trees, they need a connection, more mid sized trees. The rocks need some variation in color. The group of rocks in the water need light. The bushes on the bank to the right look like they were groomed. In general nature is very random, so it's important to create that by varying shapes and being aware of how each change effects the total composition. I do think the painting is worth saving, so I'll keep on it.
