Unlike most of painters, I'm making progress very slowly. Or some might say I'm not making much progress. I can't deny that. However, that seems to be my style to get there eventually to express my emotion toward each piece. At least so far.
I worked on the background hill side a while. I toned down the contrast between lighter and darker parts. I still need to make lighter part more lighter. I think. But it's getting closer to what I want it to be. I tried more redish color for the darker shadow part once. It didn't work well. So I ended up with bluish purple for the part.
I'll come back to the trees again next.
