On February 11, I posted a very "anemic" rendition of this painting entitled "Roanoke River Tributary". I was drawn to the image because of the diagonal compostion and color. But the blue and orange contrasting colors were not effective in the original so I intensified the orange in the forground and added snow to make the contrast more effective. The bottom horizontal log helps eye direction to remain in the painting instead of going off at the bottom right. It is fun and very interesting to continue my self imposed critique.
