Jim Lamb Plein Air Workshop - Day 2
For the dark background trees, he helped me to paint cool darker part on top of overall color of the big mass to make the rest to come forward, instead of painting highlighted part, which would destroy the total value. It's much darker than real trees but it works for this painting.
He put some key shadow shapes in both background and foreground. Without it, this painting was very dull.
