MY COMMENTS:
Plein Aire took about 3 hours. Sun was shining in my face. So after a while my eyes started to loose the different shades of greens.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Are the greens too similar? I tried to mix them up a little. Any help on this piece would be much appreciated.

threads of light and color wind vertically, objects array horizontaly, all very natural, very beautiful, contact with edges, geometry of shadows, very good.

I think I understand what you said....... I think. Your use of words are different. I touched this one up a little at home. Worked on flowers, shadows, tree trunk bases, and light through the trees.

Thanks Mark,
It was hard not to do more to this one. As I was driving home and looking at the painting in the seat next to me, I thought about all I wanted to do to it. The painting looked totally different at home in the artificial light then outside.

I think my stlye is too detailed and I tend to get anal about my work. I need to losen up a little and have more of a paintery feel with bolder strokes and such.

Anyway, it is all a learning experience. Thanks for the feedback.
