Unnamed 3 | Oil Painting by Chad Russell

I am loving the shrubbery in the bottom left. I believe I’m getting the hang of coloring over the darker areas to bring out the foliage in the foreground. My large tree got a little muddy in the middle because I had some distant trees painted in behind it similar to the trees on the right and I began to thin my paint out a little too much. Also, I tried to darken out some of the clouds and didn’t highlight them correctly (look to the right of the mountain). If you look to the left of the mountain you’ll see what I was trying to accomplish. Anyways, I’m happy with this one.
