Outcropping

I worked on this one on location for about about 3 hours earlier today. I found the scene and composition difficult to handle, and finished it up tonight in the studio with about 2 more hours work. The top of these limestone outcroppings were covered in moss, as was a lot of the tree trunks where they emerged from the ground, and most of the rocks.

(Here's a re-do on this one. I didn't like where it was and decided to attack it. It's only paint and canvas. The original is below the adjusted painting.)

I think it is beautiful, Bill. Reminds me of places near where I live. Something so spring-like about moss to me...
