Closeup of Tree and Hillside (Revised)

Yesterday I posted the revised version of an oil bar painting that I started in 2015, working from a photo that I took at Appleton Farms, in Ipswich, MA.  Yesterday I reworked  the leaves, and this closeup shows what I did. For a long time, I have been thinking of making the foliage look a bit looser, less precise.  So yesterday, I revised the foliage, adding more red, yellow, and orange to create more connections among the leaves. What I wanted was to call more attention to the tree as a whole, and less attention to the individual leaves.
