Ranchita Arroyo Grande Morning – Foreground details

I reached for my favorite brushes..numbers 2, 1 and 0.  Now comes the reward!

I moved from middle to foreground laying in all the details and modeling all the finest elements.

As I move around the painting, I am also making value changes in darks and lights.

I layed the form layer for the foreground fencing and set the painting aside to dry for the final work…scrumbling and the smallest accents of light and dark.

*As a treat to the owners of this ranch and painting, I engraved their initials in the gate post with my size 0 brush.
