The rocks have been simplified so that the eye goes over them and deeper into the distance. Also, I have taken liberties with the colours.
It's not that I need to take shortcuts, it's just that I need to be "painterly" - I need to see with my own vision of the subject before me ...

Beautifully done Ron...colours are right on!
When I first started painting Jeffrey I thought that if I didn't get the subject exactly accurate I was cheating - NOW I realize that there is a higher truth to art - put pieces of yourself in the paint.
