more process

Too much information in yesterday's version so I moved the boy again, this time right into the blue green area.  I like this but  - whoops it's not the right size and if I'm going to go with the shadow I want the whole tree shadow.  That would make a nice square painting - but I don't have a square canvas so that composition too is for another day.

What is this painting about anyway?  Well we have a guy carrying trash and we have a barrel full of trash on a lovely day.  This is what life is often about.  Shall I zero in and make it just the guy with the trash or include the looming tree and the trash barrel?  I adjusted the light and went with the looming tree and the trash barrel.  Tomorrow - on to the canvas.
