The Graveyard (WIP) 2

I have worked some more on this - detail in the foreground, mostly, and some more work on the trucks in the rear.  There is definitely some more work to be done darkening the truck on the left side of the painting. The foliage in the top  needs to be darkened  to bring out the trucks in the front. I sort of hate to lose the poured colors in the top of the painting, so I'll have to spend some time analyzing this.

This is going to be beautiful when completed. I will never forget an old VW beetle you did in this manner, Barb. I so loved that painting and this one reminds me much of it.

Thanks so much, Sherry! I am trying to finish it, but have been busy preparing lesson paintings for the class I teach.
I think I remember the VW beetle you are talking about! I am honored that you can remember that.
