Here is the finished landscape of yesterday’s post. Just seeing it again brings back the complete sensation of the this particular outdoor scene. If you look closely, (in yesterday’s post especially) you may find a tiny gnat in the sky that dove in and expired. I owe a debt of gratitude to the little critter for this sacrifice which lends greater realism to my work.
