partial rework

"Sky View Meadow II" is a partial rework of the original painting (see original below). In the original, I believe the eye bounces from the yellow area in lower right foreground to the orange area directly above. I want the viewer to have an expanded journey through this scene so I put more detail and less mass in the lower right (the entry point into the scene). From here there are a couple paths around the painting but the one my eye takes is to the continued detail on the left and up to taller pink grasses along the hilltop. Added blue to carry the eye along the treeline to the right, to the orange spot and back to foreground detail. I added detail to the trees and softened the blue hills in the distance.
