Finally got to work on this little painting

Gosh, it took a while to get at this...constant interruptions. Life gets in the way of painting. I checked the values. I didn't want to go too strong as it is a Spring painting. I cut the tree way back as it overpowered the buildings. I had to change the colors in the building to get the effect of late afternoon light and shadow. I needed much more planning on this little piece and as I said before I had to go back in and blur out some things from previously white knuckling it (tight detailed painting) My hero is Marc Hanson. He just can make those small paintings sing with few brushstrokes.
