On the Easel - "Winter's End"

My latest oil painting is about finished - I really tried to stand back and paint this from a distance to get the shapes, values, and colors correct. Winter's End, 16x12, oil on board.

Looser Oil Painting

I just started working on a new oil painting, and this is only a few hours work. It's very rough, but I am trying to focus more on getting the overall values and shapes right, and worrying about details later. This is 16x12 oil on board.
