Pointillism Dot by Dot

The above photo shows that I’ve loosely defined the clothing on the figures, and began to add pointillism, one dot at a time, to the sky and the foreground.

Here I’ve added more pointillism to the foreground ice, some on the snow in the tree shadows, and I’m adding more definition to the distant mountains. I’ve softened the tree line on the mountains and defined some of the ridges. These changes are very subtle at this point, but essential.
More tomorrow,
