Fall is here and it's time to paint mushrooms! This is the start of a new smaller painting. Hopefully I can get the moss to look mossy.
The final shroom. Moss is pretty difficult to get right. For this moss, I did faint strokes in a light green color and then went in with darker strokes between. The lighter areas in the final painting show what that looked like at first. Then around the base of the mushroom, I went through with more colors layered on top (blue greens, yellow greens, and pale yellow). I will have to practice some different moss types in the future!
