Today I worked more in the background. With the trees, at the end of the meadow being so far back they tend to blend into the ones on the side of the mountain. Since there is miles of separation I needed to show that. So the pine trees on Broken Top Mountain I put a lot of blue in and darkened the value right behind the foreground trees. I also keep them warmer and slightly lighter in value so they pop out a little from the background. With a warm foreground and cool background it reads well. Tomorrow I'll add the figures on the right bank.

This one I finally finished off as well and sent the image to Jim at Mockingbird Gallery. I've ordered some nice frames for these which should be arriving on Monday.
