Here's a good exercise in editing; Sitting on the lawn looking at the scene before me I took a very long and relaxing time deciding what the painting would be OF, as opposed to diving in and trying to paint the whole forest.
I chose to make something of an L shaped composition with paint and leave a significant tree on the right in pencil only. Having that penciled tree in there is important but if I'd painted it the composition would have looked like a football goal post.
