Eric Jaconson WS - Day 2

Today, I brought the reference photo I took at Skagit river several years ago to the WS, and asked Eric about the composition I should cut out of. The photo includes the embankment of the river and shorter trees on the left side. But if I painted both embankment and the river together, the taller tree (in the image on the left) would come to the center of the frame, which I wanted to avoid.

Eric suggested to use only the river part, which I painted above and also I did on site when I was there. I think that was the same reason I painted that way at that time. Anyhow the rest has come naturally. I think I handled the softer edges better than yesterday.
