I documented the progression of this painting just for record keeping sake. We took a trip to the location to get some images to work with. It was a wet and rainy day, and I almost canceled. But the children were so eager to take this walk that I relented. On top of the rain, there were several fallen bamboo stalks (see top photo)
But the pictures you take are really just for reference. Some creative license can be taken always.
We took a walk all the way up to the Tracking station and got creeped out by the way the clouds were rolling in. Jordan said it could pass for a scene from a horror movie, and the kids joked about seeing zombies come up from the bushes....LOL
So here is the painting. No words needed. The final is at the end.
