Thank you very much, Carmelo. I'm glad that you enjoyed it. :)

Making the painting 'alive' 2

I finished the forest flor. Added gras, flowers and few berry patches.

I painted grass moving from bottom to top. I find that way easiest.

Colors used: leftovers from leaves, cadmium red deep, cadmium orange, dioxazine purple, ivory black and titanium white

All that remains now is adding some details to the bark.

A very interesting record of your process. The final
product is beautiful and looks friendly enough to want
a walk-through. I love your painstaking attention to detail
with the bark, the grass, the leaves in the tree, etc.
Actually it looks like a lot of gentle people marching
towards a heavenly horizon (don't ask me why I thought
of this because I don't know.)
I can see you love the Forest. E

Karin,
I just wanted to tell you that I think the step-by-step process you did with this painting is amazing. It would make a very good tutorial for young artists learning to work in steps and layers. I would love to see more people do this.

all the best,
Joe
