Forest Opening

Forest Opening Sketch, Blue Pencil and Ballpoint Pen, 10.5"x 8"

Forest Opening Color, Painter, 10.5"x8"

I pried the sketch a couple of days ago and just felt like coloring. I haven't done an environment since the "Tidepool" class. I focused more on saturation in this painting and I think it's time I explore different brushes for environment design. The forms tend become rounder as I render areas, which worked well for areas immersed in atmosphere but I wasn't too sure how to handle the read of details in the foreground. In conclusion, I am off to do more nature studies.
