It’s not always easy pt. 2

I was finally able to steal a day for working on this painting. I did as I said and moved the clouds forward into the middle ground. Also, I broke up the tree line hoping to make them less clumsy looking. I think thus far the strategy is working nicely. I want to continue to work with the trees maybe building a little more contrast into them and into the smoke.

Particularly these two areas need work. I want to move more of the cream/brownish tone from the center into the large smoke shape on the right.  Also, something has to happen about those trees.  At the same time I want to start thinking about the lower horizontal field area. I think it has a good start with layering but something more needs to be going on there.

Here is hoping that my next post on this will be soon and a completion of this painting.
