I hate the feeling you get after you photograph the painting, put it in the frame and are just about ready to deliver it to the gallery. You take one last look at it and the feeling hits you, that it's not just there yet, another words the painting could be better.

So I took it back out and re-worked the entire foreground.

here is how it looked before

and now after lightening up the grass and some of the village.  Now I feel better!!!

I worked on this piece afterwards, mainly the plants and foreground cement. Tomorrow I'll finish it up for the evening crit session. The crit session where I take notes to find all the things that need to be re-worked and re-painted the next day...
