Freedom from the bondage of these vines is within reach. Although I didn’t get as far along as I would have liked, I’ve made good progress with the morning glory, with a single day’s work ahead before this layer is complete. I still need to fix up some of the flowers and a few of the leaves in the higher parts of the painting where the blue has made them a little too indistinct, although letting the edges get soft as the height increases is a good way of increasing the sense of depth of the painting (atmospheric perspective in action).
