Enhancing A Field Study

Sometimes we maybe should see if I can improve the field study in the studio, it would be logical that you should be able to, but sometimes we lose certain things in the original ,but we must take this risk to learn to grow. Above is the revised and below is the original. I see certain things I like better in each. I played with the depth, a greater color temperature shift and some of the shapes. Make frustration your friend, and laugh a little as you try to improve a painting.  It never ceases to amaze me how hard painting can be , especially when trying to grow, but it can be quite satisfying if you can learn something new, hope you enjoyed this little comparison, I will be doing a couple of others in the next few weeks.

This is a great subject for you to dwell on. I do this alot and photograph before and after so I too can learn from my mistakes. On yours at first glance I like the more atmospheric background in the original but I also like the color change and intensity of the foreground and trees in the second one.

I'd like to see more of these. I think a lot of people will benefit. (by the way, nice painting).
