Red Leaves in the Woods (Oil Bar Painting as of June 3)

This morning I got up early so I could work on this oil bar painting. This is a view of the woods around Long Hill Gardens, from a photo that I took there back in October. Today I concentrated on the dark foliage on the right and left sides of the canvas, trying to get a little more balance in the composition. I think that helped. I also modified a couple of the trees, suggesting some of the lower branches, and even splitting one of the trees into a "twin" tree. I am more optimistic about this painting than I was yesterday. I think things are starting to come together. To be continued....
