|pastel on board 11 x 14|
I used a plein air field study to "bring me back to the place" and my photographic reference to do a larger studio painting here. I made a few composition changes in this one.
An artist can change things around anyway that looks good. Clumps of trees can be changed and moved. Rocks can be changed too. I might do another painting from this again....the thing I want to accomplish in all of them is the morning light, the colors, the mood.
One idea I have is to have more background showing, and open up the view. (Sorry trees, some of you have to go!).
