I first painted this about a month ago and quite liked it, reviews from colleagues were positive. However
I felt like it could do more, have more depth. So I removed the far trees, which were too similar to each other, put in a small hillside in the background and re-did the trees, making them less similar. In the first version the background was a barrier. My intention in the second version was to create more depth in the background. Also, Ia dded some more reflected light in the foreground shadows.
I think it has become a more interesting painting.
