|"school's out in njala" (13.5"X15.5")|
the upper right hand of the picture frame. i felt they would probably cast a dark shadow on the road on the near right so i darkened that area right of the boys. little more fussing here and there....like getting the figures under the mid-distance tree on the left in shadow by a light grayish blue glaze, darkening the corresponding tree so it was the same value as the rest of the nearby vegetation, etc. the last thing(s) i painted were the telephone/power poles making sure they lightened in value as they receded and got smaller.
at the time i reached this point, i felt i wasn't adding anything substantive so i decided to declare it finished.
