Here's an uncropped first study of beautiful spot in Milford.

too complicated.  I think it will be better simplified.

Here's a cropped version.

 Here it is cropped to a square.

I think this is the best of the three compositions. 
I have to continually remind myself to use a viewfinder when I paint outdoors.  The landscape has so much information in it!

Back in the studio I can play with the design and because I've painted it on site, I remember more of what drew me to paint it.

Ask yourself:  "why am I painting this?"
"What is it I want to say?"
"How can I say it as simply as possible?"
