Far From Prospect Point (revised)

Another revision. Not huge changes on this one. As I suspected the horizon line was off, so that is now remedied. As well, I eliminated one of the sky holes and decreased the size of the others. Perhaps the most noticeable change is the colour of the blue sky peaking through. Although the original colour was quite true to the actual sky that day, it didn't work in the painting. The intensity of the blue was too "in your face". It's better now; more compatible if you will.

Above is the original version. Oh yes, I also added a couple of brushstrokes of the pale yellow from the clouds into the water. It is a bit hard to see the effect in the photo, but in person it just adds a luminosity that wasn't there before.
