This was actually a very challenging painting! I went to the Metroparks just a couple of hours before sunset and ran out of time. I was disappointed of the work done during the session, I felt the work was way too amateur, that I didn't pick the right colors and that the composition was not pretty. I let the painting sit for the night and in the morning decided to give it another hour or two and see if I could save it. I think the results are decent although it is not following some of the basic rules of painting to provide depth and volume, that is why I keep practicing. At the end, I think it captures the vibe I was shooting for, the river on the far right breaks the monotony. I am glad I didn't give up and finished the painting.
