forest - AcrylicAn early experiment in rendering an effect of distant trees accurately. Painting the foreground trees was not a problem but I never knew how to doa good 'dense wood' background. I took a walk and took a few photos; on inspection the background of a wood seems to have four colour layers: a bottom layer, very very dark, a mid layer of mottled brown, an upper layer of green interspersed with blue and a top blue sky layer. I did a wash of these layers first before adding the rest of the picture.
