Hey Ken thanks submitting this assignment. Sorry I am little behind but have been extra busy. Ok as I have mentioned before the main problem you seem to be having is your blending technique. You tend to have very hard/harsh edges specifically on the road and shadows in the grass plus the shadows are too dark and need to have much softer edges. Your sky,mountains and background turned out really good. The only issue there is you used too much white in the fog/misty areas which makes the fog look very chalky. The mixture should be white with a touch of ultramarine blue and dioxazine purple. Just be sure the mixture dose not appear too white when you apply it. Now be sure to soften and lighten all of your cast shadows to eliminate hard edges. The next thing is that the road is way over highlighted and shadows are also too harsh. The shadows should be more of a mauvish gray color. Remember the rule” the values should be lighter at the back of the road and gradually become darker as you come forward. Your road has no value changes it is all one tone so you really do need to change that. The trees and rocks turned out fairly good. The only other thing is the dead aspen tree on the left of the road is too light for that area of the value system. Even though they have a whittish bark you still need to make it darker for where it is located. I cant wait to see the changes. God bless you and stay inspired.66
