The sky and distant mountains are not finished, but their values are well enough established that I can move into the middle ground and plant trees. I’ve defined the light and dark shapes of the middle ground but the foreground grasses have not been touched. They remain as the original under painting at this stage. Hmm…..it is taking shape and has a nice feel. Hope I don’t screw it up.
