This is my painting, The Mountains. The color of the mountains against the clear blue sky first attracted me. I previously posted the unfinished painting. At that time, there was a small house on the left side. It was felt this house competed with the house on the right side and that it would be best if I removed it from my painting. I first lightened the house on the left side. This didn’t appear to help so I eliminated it from my painting. I then felt something was missing from the left side of the canvas; the painting did not appear balanced. I added the tree. I am not certain about this change in composition. I would love to hear your comments. The painting’s dominant value is middle tones. The temperature of the painting is primarily cool.
