Out from Under

This is a redo of the picture below.  I would like to push the colors a bit more from here on out as I attempted to do here.  This is a 5x7 on Canson paper.

I have been looking at a book by Nicholas Verrall, an English painter who does very colorful oil paintings.  He notes four issues about painting landscapes outside:
a. "unreliable nature of light and weather"
b. "deciding which part of a landscape to concentrate on."
c. "find[ing] a composition that is different and challenging..."
d. "they can be unrelentingly green."
