Paint paint paint!

Well, it's to the cave for me all weekend, working on a Septenber exhibit. As I mentioned in my previous post, I have six plein air paintings I am using as reference to make six larger pieces.

This is my first one.The study is in the prior post. Contrary to my original plan, it is not high key. I preferred to painting a local tone approach, since it was an overcast day and lent itself to it already. I think the drawing is there now and I like it much better than the small one. But it seems dreary or lacking something. Any ideas?

Actually Jeanne this is very nice- I really like the color harmony in this painting- I like the little one but like the colors in this better. The bluish purples with the greens look nice- and I like the gray sky.
