Chamisa in Snow #2 16"x20" $425

I did some more work on this painting and thought it might be fun for you to guess what changes I made and do you think it improved the painting?  The top painting is the finished one.  So here is what i did:  Made the background trees in the right hand corner more solid so they relate better to the other tree shapes.  Made the chamisa less clumpy and more lacey so that the background fence comes through in more areas.  And lastly, I unified the foreground by making it all in shadow so the patches of snow in sunlight are more dramatic and pull your eye right to the chamisa which is the star of the show!
