This painting reminds me how much a painting can change during its creation. It went through several stages and at one time it looked like this:

But several iterations later it looks radically different. Mountains appeared, people disappeared and reappeared in a different position. Colours were enhanced where it suited the composition and suppressed where they intruded too much. Most of all I made the decision to build up a thick layer of paint and to make the paint an essential part of the composition.
