Day seven and a sliver of solace is in view.  I changed up the color scheme from the photo but kept that pretty pink glow in the sky.  Really concentrated on simplifying the shapes and making sure each one of my brushstrokes served a purpose.

I appreciate the absence of bright color and your tonalist approach, great for a meditative piece.
