Point of Rocks, step 3

Painting the foreground

point of rocks
I developed the large trees on the left, added more branches, lightened and brightened the right edge of the foreground tree so it would stand out from the background trees. I added more branches and limbs that had washed up on the island.

I developed the reflections both of the trees in the distance as well as the foreground tree. I realized that the yellow tree was stiff, so I lowered the large left branch, making it more graceful. In the background, I added more red to the trees for contrast.

The title will be Autumn at Point of Rocks.
