The progression of a painting

Finished painting..... made some minor adjustments from where I started.  Decided I wanted something a little brighter, so I glazed washes of Verditer Blue several times over the sky and even pushed it into the pines and yellow aspens.  Lightened up the rocks in the foreground and threw in some dead/dying pines to add a little interest, and put a yellow ochre wash over the aspens.....

Finished painting with 3 1/2" off-white mat
