4121: Bynum Wedding Portrait Day 11

I haven’t been able to spend a lot of time on painting every day due to a severe reduction in my motivation. But I’m still making progress and I’m still enjoying this painting.

I continued with the background by building up the trees and ridges of the mountain. I always find it really fascinating. How when you paint something organic like a tree or a forest of trees you have to constantly push yourself to be as random and organic as possible. We tend to always put things in order with structured patterns. But nature isn’t like that, it’s perfect imperfection.
