Step 10 - Finishing up

More rusts, reds, and purple hues were added to foreground. Shadows were glazed as cast from trees using ultramarine blue and quin gold, from right to left across the bottom. A final splattering of pale orange done up in the foliage and a bit at the bottom for balance. Softening edges with a damp brush will complete the backlit aspens.
