Work in Progress 2

I have worked on the acrylic since the last post, mostly on the trees and their foliage. I was reluctant to work over the yellow ochre areas in the top third of the painting as I liked the contrast of the ochre against the blues of the swathes of bluebells. Some of it still shows through the overpainting as it does in the foreground. I needed to work over it as Iwanted to show some newly emerging foliage. I don't think it's finished yet, I'll give it a bit of time so that I can come back to it fresh. Just seeing it here smaller brings me a new perspective.
