I am processing these paintings differently than the birds and flowers I paint.  They are a little looser and perhaps more expressive.  The painter's hand will show.  Landscapes in general are more forgiving with representative painting.  It's slow going because many of the colors are complementary.  When trying to layer or blend I will get a color that I don't want.  The glow of the sun would probably have worked better if I glazed some oranges and yellow over a white ground.
