After many days of many layers, this painting is close, but not quite done yet. The last two days were the longest, and I’m pretty pooped out right now. But my in-house art critic (really, there is one–this isn’t a sly reference to my own inner critic!) says the tree trunks need more texture. I agree, but that will have to wait for the next pass. I do continue to love the shadows, and I also am happy with the way the color selections turned out.
Now I’m going to have a nice little home-cooked dinner, and, as Scarlett O’Hara was fond of saying, “I’ll think about that tomorrow”.
