Demonstration: Painting a Landscape on Commission, Part 2

Completing the painting
This painting will be viewed from a distance, therefore, I have kept the detailing to a minimum. If I worked too tightly, the scene would appear too static. Plus, the client prefers a looser treatment.

I work on the shadow areas incorporating the violet tones found in the room. The most difficult color to bring in was the alizarin to rose tones. I used these colors somewhat in the background and with more intensity on the vine stems.

The massive green lawn had to be broken up by modulating the greens and strengthening the path. I also toned down the vines on the far side of the arch so they had some visual distancing.
