First, the ground area begins with small grasses and shrubs, dry brushed in several earth colors. A small "tree line" is dabbed across the base of the mountains. Split brush is very helpful here.
While that is drying, a shallow pond is stroked in on the right. Broad stroke layers are added for lightness.
Then impasto trees begin with thin brush application for fine branches. Students are reminded: structure first. The tree will be continued later.
The front right area will be a wildflower field, and dark ground and green leaf masses are prepared. This area, also part of the Sequential Guide Poster, is completed in the three steps shown below.
Step1. The entire area for the field flowers is covered in a dark brown/black. While wet, the brush is flipped over and random, curved lines are etched into the black creating many white lines, the flower "stems". The area is left to dry.
Step 2. Three values of green--light, medium and dark are "stippled" or short stroked over the dark ground color. Stems are not completely covered.
Each value can overlap the previous one for more mixed blends.
The area is left to dry again.
At last, the frosting finally gets on this part of the cake.
Three values of fushia are "stippled" with the tip of a still brush, loosely over and above the green leaf areas.
Overlapping stippling into wet applications will effect mixing of fushia intensities adding more values to the section.
To see the wild flower section put together, see it in COMPLETION which adds the final touches to the entire composition.
