Commission 4/15- NODP


**NODP is the code i use to keep Daily Painters Gallery from featuring this on our site**

Here's the finished painting i've been working on the last couple of days. i really like the way it came out.

The final stage of this was completed by tweaking the individual shapes from step 2 on the post below. i added lots of temperature variations in each shape, blurring and tightening edges, adding lots of nice accents, that make this piece pop.

Especially love the feeling of depth i got by making the grass and field shapes bigger and more saturated in color up close vs. smaller and cooler to show distance or depth as it goes back. this was way more successful on the final than on the original color sketch.
