(The photo is blurred, couldn't get a better picture with the digital camera)
With no purpose but to finish a school project in mind, I created this piece from a beautiful photograph from a mountainside. The original picture had a rainbow, but I decided to turn the focal point towards the trees, giving the painting an asymmetrical balance. It turned out reasonably well, but I was disappointed with the element of horizontal motion. The valley appears thin and blocked in. The foreground rocks could have had more variety in their vertical height.
