WIP - Children

Here I've begun laying a neutral background set up for the negative shape trees, leaving the misket or frisket fireflies intact.  I used what paint there was on the palette plus yellow green.  Next was the boy Jimmy's blue jeans painted with ultramarine blue.  His shirt will be white.  Another wash was done on the children's faces.  Added darks to foreground green foliage.  Stay tuned.

I like how you did the background. It would take patience to paint this way. I just block in everything and then keep going over it all. Your way is probably much better. You can get the areas right and then go on with your other colors and such.
