February 2

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.
