Olive Tree Trio oil painting - Rework

Olive Tree Trio
30x24cm (approx 12"x10")
Oil on gessoed panel
palette knife painting 

Another rework from the 30 day challenge. I felt the painting (see HERE) was a bit cold and had a lack of breathing space in the foliage. I added a hint of red poppies and reworked some of the foliage. I added more yellow to the foreground tree to warm it up and bring it forward. I also warmed some of the tree shadows and worked the negative space around the trees. I am much happier with it now.
