Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_ WHEN TO STOP?

This was completed, originally, as a study, and then evolved in the studio. Something I will commonly do in my process, unless of course, I am participating in a competition that asks that paintings be completed entirely on sight. That's a demonstration of a particular painting skill that surely has great value.  However, for me my objective is not a particular technique argued for by "purists".  I'm attracted by the act of interpretation.  Some interpretations are quick as a sandwich, while others are simmered in the crockpot.
