Demo Part 4


A few final details are all that is needed to complete the painting.

I add a few dark grasses crossing the lighter grasses in the foreground. I also decided to add some tall weed seed pods to the grasses to add some variation.

I added a bare branch to the trees on the left.

I lightened the value in the center where the path disappears. It had become too dark and was not allowing the eye to travel beyond into the far field.

I added a little color and detail to the distant trees.

A little more blue was added to the sky. One of my students thought it would make it more dramatic.

I was happy with the painting so I signed it!

Title - "The South Forty"
