I’m making some progress on this interesting scene, making some compositional changes as I go!
I have repositioned the feature tree on the right of the scene, I’ve changed the shape of the stream and I’m starting to add a broken pathway down to the stream on the right of the scene.
At this stage, I’ve just “block in” the shadows and darks for a weeping willow tree on the left & I have started to work on the feature tree. Quite happy so far but again, the painting looks better than my photograph!!
