More fun with the sun-set oil painting!

I am working on improving my composition sense and simplifying brushstrokes to make stronger paintings. This is oil, 9x12" on masonite from a photo on WetCanvas! in the reference image library. Also showing a couple of possible compositions I drew in my sketchbook. One reason I chose this particular photo is that it is of Chincoteague Island; one of my fav books as a child was "Misty of Chincoteague" about the wild horses that live there. It was written and illustrated by Marguerite Henry and Wesley Dennis and I would love to have a copy of it!
