Continuing with the shadows
I love the flow and life in wind-blown trees, bushes, and grasses. It was fun to fill in a lot more of the greenery. My favorite part really!
And this is where I've left it tonight. Forgive the bad photo with the reflection. Only so much you can do when it's dark outside and the paint's not yet dry but you're too tired to wait until it is :). Sadly it makes it impossible to see the color I added into the shadows, which I really like. But I don't know what else to do now. I kept dabbing a little color here and there and then realized how tired I was and how mindless, and so I stopped for now. I've heard you're done when you don't know what else to do. So am I done? I'm not entirely sold on the composition. Not sure it's successful yet. I don't know really. Maybe it's done? What do you think? Any suggestions?
