OK, this is new. Did I accomplish the 'narrative landscape' or is this just an overly busy painting? I can`t tell yet, the idea is too unusual for me. Asian scroll paintings are read from one end to the other without the entire image necessarily in view. My preference has been for vertical supports with centralized, sometimes iconic compositions. This horizontal format is interesting and I want to stretch it out further. As for the subject, some more study on site would be helpful. Sometimes improvisation can be strengthened with a few facts.
