While I was working on this one I felt like I had really botched it… but some creative solutions (and scraping off and redoing about half of the foreground) I ended up with something I didn’t hate!
I did see some improvement in my cloud definition, and I was more mindful to not blend out too much of my mountains for an unnaturally large “misty area” so definitely some improvements.
The main thing I’m still struggling with though is the highlights on my bushes and leafy trees. It seems that no matter how much I add thinner or liquid white, I get 1-2 presses of highlight before by brush is saturated with by dark colors.
I feel like I’ve found tons of ways to hide my poor bush work with other details, which works to an extent, but if anyone has any tips/tricks I’d love to head what works for you!
