For the first day of this painting project, I accomplished the sky and mountains and by the end of tomorrow I plan on adding the pond and evergreens. I have been focusing on values from light to dark as each mountain was painted from left to right. So far, no underpaint was applied during this process and small sections of the canvas are being painted generously. I will be overlapping the trees over the brush which will provide depth and a rich sense of texture. I have been noting a lot of fascinating and unusual features in this painting which adds interest and intrigue. I have a hunch this painting will be done shortly!
