Battenkill @ Pooks, Day 2 or two days?

NY. 42  F  sunny a bit chilly, some wind.

I went back to the same spot on the Battenkill @ Pooks, in Shushan, NY.

Here is where I ended up.

The sun was out, and that changed everything, the light on the subject trees was better than yesterday, but the quality of the water had changed too.  I couldn't change the sky, or I just didn't want to.

Here is a progress shot about 1/2 way through an hour or so session.  I liked the way the light backlit the tress even though The light hadn't done that when I started, it looked good.

So I lived (painted anyway), two days into the same painting, while it was a bit weird, it happens all the time, usually not in such a strait-forward manner.
