9' x 12' Commission--Painting Process: Part 4

Sky, Mountains, and Lake are finished.  I really tried to capture the same ice blue tones of Lake Louise that I found so arresting the first time I saw it.  I've never seen a lake quite like it.  Here I'm adding thick leaves to one of the aspen trees with a palette knife.  I want the leaves and the trunks of the trees to literally pop out of the canvas 3-dimensionally, so I "sculpt" them using various sized palette-knives.  After the trees are done, I need to fine tune the wild flowers in the foreground...and then I'll be finished!
