Sycamore Creek-The Final Phase (I hope)

Sycamore Creek-A major painting 38x60  (with some additions)

In February of 2013 I bring this painting back onto my easle.  I have decided that the large rock that juts into the stream (see picture below) caused too harsh a seperation between the foreground and the upper part of the painting.  In other words it didn't give our eyes and smooth enough flow as we gaze at the painting.  There is always a risk of decreasing the visual effects of a painting when you start monkeying around, but I am almost finished and this will be the final phase (maybe).  It seems to be coming along.
