Easel Inauguration

I painted my first painting using my new easel last weekend. It's my first effort in several years, but I am pleased with it. I think I need to work on the bottom left though. It looks a little flat. I've discovered that trying to paint translucent things that are back lit is pretty dang hard. I scraped off the middle cloud and repainted it probably four times. This is a fairly large painting for me at around 52 x 40 inches.

Good grief...it's all I can do to draw a stick figure! Looks nice!

My eye says don't mess with the corner too much, if any. I think it would distract from the focal point in the water. If anything, maybe lighten it up just a tad, but that's it.
That's my two cents worth! :)
