Composition, Values, Big Forms, Details and Brush Work - By Eva Marie Tanner-Klaas

My goal  was to practice painting large shapes with their correct values. I also wanted to limit my brushstrokes and ensure the forms were successfully described using directional brush work.  All the pieces were  painted with limited palette.They are all painted from the same photo except edited differently.
If you struggle with plein air paintings, this is an excellent exercise.
Original photograph  taken north of Brookings, Oregon.

Simplified shapes and brushwork.

Composition changed slightly. 

Another composition changed with larger brush strokes. 
This composition is more like the original photo.
