A close up detail of the foreground foliage on the lower right side of the Kennicott original painting.
At this stage I’ve thickened the foliage with multicolored pointillism.
I have continued to add dots until the foliage is very dense.
To thin out the stems and leaves, I matched the colors in the background and used pointillism to create open spaces. I like how the foliage looks now.
