Awoke with the dawn for another session at Kelsey Creek Farm. This morning was all about modelling sunlight on the trees and adding sky holes and light and dark branches. I also added some more texture to the grass in the foreground.
If I continue to work on this painting, I will probably refine the trunks and then knock back some of the highlights, make the sky holes more natural, and figure out what to do with the large empty space in the lower left. Not sure if this will move the needle, though. I might be better off starting another painting. There are lots of other nice spots at Kelsey Creek . . .
