You are now looking at a photo of the finished painting: "Rice Fields on the Ashely".
"My Grocking" is done! This morning. I differentiated the bushy foliage on the lower right of the foreground so that the willow is distinguishable form the tree behind it. I also, adjusted the saturation of the yellows in the middle ground (rice fields grasses have more cad-yellows than before), and added a touch of blue to the sky just above the tree line on the horizon. I even signed it (after I took the photo). At this point I consider the painting process complete.
The next step is to wait until it is dry enough to have a professional photo taken of it*, then varnish and frame it,
* Note All of the photos for these mini lesson posts were taken with a hand-held camera, under my studios ceiling lights, while the canvas was still wet.. The professional photos will use a spots to give an even lighting over the entire painting, and a polarizing filter to ensure there is no reflective glare from those lights
