Right Corner and Behind Toilet

Posted by PicasaDay Three: The chickadees and finshing work on the sky. I had mixed a color to try to match the sky that was there, and got it too dark. Then went to the paint store to try to get a better match, which turned out to be too light. So I had to paint in clouds all around the merge point of the two sky colors, old and new. It finally looked okay. But it did set me back some hours. This photo shows the back wall behind the potty. The tree was there, but flat and choppy, each individual leaf was painted. I overpainted and massed the leaves, using Blending medium, and added quite a bit of new foliage. Also gave the trunk some definition with dry brush work over the trunk.
