I've made a lot of progress on "Making a Difference" and wanted to share the current state of my painting. The people in the cancer walk are getting close to completion. I'm sure I'll need to do some clean-up to sharpen edges, but I decided it was time to get in the cherry trees to make sure the similar color between the trees and the people's clothing didn't make the people disappear. I intentionally muted the trees to push them back and made sure the shadows along the bottom were at the right color and intensity to help the walkers show up. Still to be done is the spring green tree on the left.
Let me know how much I need to intensify the people to make sure they are not lost in this scene of DC. Thanks for your help.
