Portrait Of A Little Girl: Valley Gardens, Harrogate
Session 5: Painting the background. After brushing in the shapes and dark values of the background I went back in with a palette knife and added thicker paint. There is still more to do but at this point I am going to move on to her dress and let it rest for a while. Even as I write this and look at the photo I see things I want to fix and change. I think I will soften some of the edges on the leaves and simplify the branches a bit more.
