I took some progress photos showing the scene next to it. Although I didn't get the size right in this photo, it is how the painting moves along, with the sky in, I can better see the other tones, and put in the next "most different" thing.
The step from the photo above.
Here is where I finished, the trees and other "stuff" make a lot of difference, in that it provides contrasting elements to what I started with, and I like things to contrast, not only in value, but in the shape and paint quality.
I could probably take this on a bike.
