Ranchita Arroyo Grande Morning – Dark Values

Ranchita Arroyo Grande Morning - Dark & Light values  I began putting the dark and lightest values in the middle ground.  

Then I needed to paint the light green and lavendar leaves that were behind the main oak tree.  After they were in, I layed in the darks on the tree.

This will cure over the weekend and then I can start the details on the tree trunk and the canopy of dark leaves overhead.  I had to quit for the day as the good light in the studio faded away.  (which is why this pic is kinda dark, sorry.)
