Today's Studio Work

I am still fiddling with Snake River I, trying to get closer to what I feel. This photo is darker than the painting, but gets the idea across. I increased the contrast on the mountain edges, lightened the blue, made the clouds less red-violet, added red-orange to the branches and trunks of the trees, and made the background hill red-orange again.
I feel finished, but I have felt that way about this painting before, then changed my mind, so I will have to live with it to find out if it wants me to do more.
