Rocky Mountain Landscape almost Finished

The top photo shows the painting is almost complete. Looking from the bottom photo to the top you can see how I built up the shadows and textures on the fence in the foreground. I worked on adding the white tree trunks to the background treeline. Then, I added a lot of green to the field in front of the cabin. Also, the cabin became a shade darker with darker shadows. Between each of these steps I take a few days and look at the painting, living with it for a while to see what it needs next.
