What sparks the creative urge, what happens when I start to paint, what is needed for the creative process. Lessons I have learned

This is large for me.11x14 oil. It was done in an online lesson, a paint a long with Johannes Vloothaus. It is different from his as I changed the boat and some of the buildings and background. I have learned so much from this man. Been studying with him for three years now, online. He changed so much from the original photo as did I. He did it to make a better painting.For instance, changing the shape of the hills to make them more interesting, to make a melodic line, changing the dock posts to be more interesting and lean toward the rest of the picture to draw your eye in, making trees more melodic. My painting is still very wet and so there is glare, but it is raining today and cannot photograph outside.
