We accomplished a lot in this lesson. The sky was painted in Ultramarine Blue and we just added Lemon to the mix to dab in the tree behind the shed. It was easy to feather the tree off into the sky while the paint was wet. Branches were dabbed in a soft purple and highlights to the leaves were added last. The idea was to have a soft out-of-focus effect to give the painting depth.
