Virgil Retreat Final

I spent time studying this painting with a couple other wonderful artists and decided to add another elk, a bull elk to the bottom right corner. I feel this added to the story of the painting along with adding more action. This also created better balance and depth as well. In addition, I adjusted the shapes of the other elk and pushed the highlights and shadows throughout the painting. I built up more variation, color, and texture throughout the foreground grasses and sparkle to the water.
