Background Foliage Photo/Steps 3 and 4




Steps 3 (left side photo) is progressively darker than step 1 and 2. The darker colors as you come forward give depth to your painting. Notice now the tops of the trees are high and low, how the background sky shows through.
In Step 4 (right side photo) I have added some tree trunks and limbs, added some lighter green to the tops of some of the darkest bushes, and some clumps in the tree area. Once your background is done you can begin to do your front area of the photo.
Just FYI...the sky has been slipslapped as very little is showing and I have used an angle brush to accent the clouds I wanted to showcase...
