1413 - Steps to Nowhere, Part 5 of 5

In the final of five(5) episodes of "Steps To Nowhere" Jerry adds final details. #6 bristle brush and dark tone to tap in clock-wise motion to add the airy canopy over the top with leafy effects. Same technique is used to bring the light up in the painting -- for highlighting yellows into base of trees and grasses plus underbrush and saplings. Jerry uses some red to bring eye in toward the steps and to further embed the trees in the natural beauty. Jerry adds weeds in foreground with #4 script brush plus a few saplings at the base of the trees. Now Jerry uses #6 bristle to add brighter colors (orangey-red) to finish off painting plus some green to tap in some yellow-green weed-growth around base and top of steps and wall. Final warm highlights to create soft sunlight and shadows plus with the #4 round sable and using orange and purple Jerry scumbles to put final edges on leaves to make them look more like individual leaves.
