Didn't spend very much time on this one. But...still has a nice feel to it.

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Very nice.  I really like the effect of the sunlight through the trees.

Glad you took notice of that Mysti. Thanks Val. Lately I've really started to become more relaxed with paintings. Should stay that way, and maybe in a year or so I might end up tightening things up a bit more, but stay relaxed about things.

Liz, yea, you can see that difference. I can see it within the painting myself too.

Lovely scene  - sometimes things just flow, don't they.  :)
