I'm taking a vacation from work this week, a much needed break from stress. I decided my first venture would be to tackle a revision of this painting.
I decided the treeline was pretty boring so I fixed that up by bringing the sky down some into the trees and breaking them up a bit. I also added more farm buildings and a couple of larger trees.

I'd really appreciate your feedback on this one...is there too much or not enough texture in the field. Does it need to look more realistic?
