I am again in the pondering phase of this painting. I am thinking I have to quit detailing the barn wood more so it doesn't become more important than Mr. Wilbur and the wood cart. I decided to make the foreground more about melting snow than with the green grass against the snow and bare tree limbs as it was in the photo. Without a ref photo and forgotten images of what snow looks like, I hope I am getting closer to that look. Also I am wondering if I have enough darks where they are needed.
I'll submit this to the WcW for critique on these ponderings and see what I do next. I like my bare tree limbs, though!
