Well, I don't think tonight's effort to make progress on this painting made any progress. I guess it made it worse. I tried focusing on the front bush and adjusting the values. But I think I made the snow in the shadow too light. What I need to do tomorrow is making a mound of mid-value purple and from the purple I can make it a little lighter, warmer, cooler, darker, or whatever. Also I need to start applying thicker paint. Then it probably wouldn't take much longer to finish this piece.
