Them Thar Hills...
Finally got to spend a larger chunk of time on the mural again today. I've started building up the landscape in the first couple panels, particularly the hills. As you can see, I started by laying in some yellow to capture the flowers that come around every spring (and have gone at this point).
I'm so glad that I spent the time to work out the tree colors - it soooooo helped. And, as expected, I'm reworking the hill colors, or at least the brushwork. I'm using a more textured approach in the areas closer to the viewer. I still have a lot to do on them thar hills, but I like how it's started. Some I like, some needs to be adjusted. Our hills have such variety - many are bare, some have the occassional shrub or tree, while others seem to have a blanket of shrubbery.
