There is not much updating to this painting except to add more highlights than previously existed on the trees up top. I knew at the time of painting that it needed highlights to unify it MORE to the rest of the painting, but there was so much paint on it every attempt to blend just disappeared! HA. It was fine like it WAS, but it is much better like it IS. Just goes to show, a little can go a long way!
You can see here the highlights within the tree that help to describe the lights that are happening in this landscape...they are subtle, but if strong sunlight was hitting from the left, it would show up more than previously described.
Like I said, it is simple, but just gives a bit more information.
"Pine Canyon" is painted on it's sides.
And there you have it...I'm MUCH happier with it...so, as always, there is a reason some paintings come home with me!
