Tangerine Winter - reworked acrylic

22x30 acrylic on Saunders 140 lb hot press paper, the AFTER version of the initial abstract disaster below.  I flipped it horizontally then for top tree line, did mostly negative painting to form trees.  Then I put in a dark value blue for the land and had snowy areas for far background skies.  Largely leaving much of the original, I added shadow shapes across the fore and middle ground.  At least it is now recognizable as a wintry landscape and is Copyright 2014 Kay Smith.
BEFORE version, an abstract nonobjective mess done in Doug Walton's workshop in March.  Its title was Tangerine Sky.
