Fine-tun­ing the de­tails

The cir­cu­lar forms of the tree frame the piece and give it some en­ergy and move­ment, and the flow­ers are adding a lot of fun de­tail and bits of colour. From here, it’s mostly a mat­ter of fine-tun­ing of de­tails, colour and tone. I no­tice that the tree is a lit­tle dark and heavy, so I make a note to lighten it up.

I al­ways make sure to take a step back and eval­u­ate the en­tire im­age as a whole. When work­ing, I fre­quently make mi­nor ad­just­ments to the way the im­age sits on the page, ei­ther to tighten in and fo­cus or shrink down ar­eas to give them more space. With this piece, I feel that adding a lit­tle more space on the top is nec­es­sary, so I make a bit more room for the tree.
