Step 16 - Composition fixed


Finally fixed the composition, adding a tree on the left that is quite high saved my day. I also merged the two stones, and added a third. I removed the beach in the foreground. They bright colors of the water and beach destroyed the mood. Much better this way.

• I darkened the middle forest a lot, making better depth. Added more details everywhere.

Step 17 - Details

In the previous step I darkened the forest so now I added single strands of leaves and bushes that are in a brighter value. Added more splash and details to the waterfall.

• I added reflections to the water. I copied the painting above the water into a new layer. This layer I resized and twisted using the shortcut "CTRL+T". I then mirror the layer and changing the opacity so that the water still is visible.
Next step was to erase the reflection on all places where there shouldn't be any reflection.

Step 18 - Details

More details, this time focusing on theforeground tree. Adding leaves and grass.

Step 19 - Almost done...

Almost final. After this step I go trough the painting adding FX details, such as sunrays, glowing fairies. Darkening parts. Adding some flowers that stand out in color and much more.
Then when finished I add a signature, save the original and smaller versions for internet use.
