Had a good day with the ranch house I am working on. Established some boundaries for shrubs and background forest where the yard and trees meet. Also got the backgrounds for most of the yard foliage blocked in. Used greens and umbers and did some work on the yard. These efforts helped to set the house farther back for more depth. I hope to move out on the foliage and put in flowers by the weekend and also get the palm top started. Putting in the shadows on the roof and under the porch eaves is planned for last. Until then, the scene will look rather stark. Just some thoughts re. the work.
