I made a short video with Gbox about painting the foreground. It is often hard to get a really fresh and energized foreground. It’s necessary to use more abbreviated strokes and abstract shapes in the foreground because adding too much detail attracts too much attention away from the focal points. In this particular composition I wanted to lead the eye away from the center where I placed a round tree—not the best idea—but I wanted to see if I could make this work with a very active and high chroma foreground.
