Step 6 – I add color to the mountains and fill out the grouping of trees. I also make a lot of mental decisions about how I want the field to look when finished.
Step 7 – I start to add in layers of color to the field. I make sure the colors are lighter, cooler, and the shapes simpler as they recede further back. I also add details to the background trees.
Step 8 – I basically scuffle with the painting at this point – adding and subtracting detail, slashing and scraping for texture until I get the desired effect! I decide at this point I need to add in additional directions of line to draw the viewer’s eye into the painting, then to the focal trees and around the painting.
Step 9 – Finished piece!
