I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to discover just the right color for the lightest part of the woods. I wanted something fairly neutral, but not gray. I kept ending up with pink. Finally looked at my palette and remembered this very dark purple-red I mixed earlier for the dark areas of the two mares. Thinned it out to almost nothing, glazed it over the woods area and voilà! When that dries, I can enrich the dark areas and add the tree trunks. Home stretch, yeah baby!
