I have such a hard time taking good photos of the paintings I do. The light always reflects off the paint. So this is the first time I've intentionally painted a foreground, a mid-ground, and a background. The trees are layered. The first trees are a grey with a very dark green, the mid are a grayish brown with a slightly lighter shade of green, and finally the most detailed trees in the foreground. I chose to use a very light grey for the "sky" as I was trying to convey more of a diffused light rather than direct sunlight.
