New Painting - Little Arkansas in Spring

The river behind my studio has been inspiration for several of my oil paintings. This photo shows the very beginning of a new painting of the Little Arkansas River - in spring. At this stage of the painting I have blocked in some colors and I'm beginning to define shapes with brush strokes.
I'm using oil on pvc panel 24" x 22" which has been sprayed with XIM primer.
My goal in this painting is to keep the colors light and use brush strokes to define shapes and to draw the eye the focal point. The large triangular shapes help define the focal point.
Much more work to be done here......
Let me know what you think. Comments?????
