Close foreground/mid-ground trees development and details.
W.I.P

Sitting no#5

I now pay attention to the dark tree shadow areas of the foreground trees to the right of the image, stippling the paint on using a 1" flat synthetic badger brush, still working on details of the main tree in foreground and now painting in the pier along with tree details by the buildings.
The branches of the main tree I start to expand as well as adding just vague touches of leaves at this point. Further touches of greens and highlights are added to the grass area and structural details embellished upon the buildings to make them look a bit sharper.
Tones used are exactly the same as sitting 4 with the addition of Permanent Sap Green.
