12x12", oil on canvas
I painted this one mostly on location, about a month ago. The day was partially cloudy, the light kept changing, and I kept chasing it - not a good approach. Also, trying to cram too many things in a small size canvas was a terrible idea. So, for the last couple of days I've been re-working it, sorting out the tonal values, and simplifying, simplifying, simplifying everything.

Now I have to wait for a nice cloudy day to take a better photo of it.
It's approximately 47x20", oil on canvas.
Update: the title is "Letting Go", and it's

16x16", oil on canvas
Once in a while I get a painting so stubborn, that it makes me wonder if I have learned anything at all.
After more than three months, I think, this one is almost finished. I'll probably tweak it some more in the next few days, but it's 99% done.
