|the second version of the scene|
I painted this scene first after visiting it last summer on a smallish canvas. In my first painting of it, I shied away from the intense green of the meadow and I think the loss of a lush carpet of grasses and flowers made that first painting worth revisiting. In this one, I let the saturated colors shine -- and although I painted it on a slightly larger canvas, I didn't go all out and paint this on a larger canvas.
Now with these two done, I think I may tackle a truly large painting of the scene.
