Simplification, or The Coloring Book School of Art

Which Twin is the Photo?
In order to make the painting less complex, and less realistic, I have taken out the extraneous trees. This is about the big tree and the clouds, and how their shapes reflect one another, so that is my focus.

I like to do an outline of the shapes and then fill them in with a brush that is really a bit too large for the shapes, so that I do not get all fussy with the details. Another artist might want to get into every little thing, but my style is loose; representational but not realistic.
