Probably last update for "Pals"

From here, I would make some color adjustment for some particular parts, which probably can't be seen well in this resolution of photos w/ this level of lights. I'm still not satisfied with the browns of the left horse. I want to put more highlights to them as well. I might make the ground thicker too. And some other things I want to do....
Anyway, it's nearing to the end for sure.

Getting more colorful

Whiling filling colors for the background hill, I started questioning myself about the colors of the hill. The reference photo is showing too bluish colors. To make up my mind, I went to Wenatchee last weekend to see actual colors. Since the season is spring, instead of autumn, the hill was more greenish with short grass. But it was mainly yellow-brownish. My on-site painting was likely more closer to the actual colors.
I started putting light yellows for the poplars just to see the balance of the colors. I need to put some more colors on the water to see the balance well.

Looking for right colors

Shapes are almost done. Started looking for colors. I tested some highlighted reddish colors with the left horse. I'm not satisfied yet. While waiting for them to dry, I'll add some more layers on the right horse next.
