Rainbow Valley WIP

Added more stuff. Noticed that the lamp post on the extreme right is supposed to be further back, started the process of changing its position.

What attracted me to the scene in the beginning was the sunset, but as the sky got darker I noticed the bands of colour on the road.  In the watercolour sketch they are very underdeveloped, but when I started looking at the reference photo I decided to bring them out.  I also liked the grass in the foreground, which I didn't really notice when I sitting in it.  (I was too busy swatting at the numerous mosquitoes.  The life of a Canadian plein air painter is itchy.)
