Close up cotton
I detailed the cotton, after removing the masking fluid, with shadows of cobalt blue mixed with rose madder genuine. When dry, I added stems and branches with a mix of cobalt blue and burnt sienna. In the distant cotton, I found that I needed to break the whites down smaller with the field color to make them look farther away. Finishing the cotton turned into a fairly lengthy process of push and pull until I was satisfied with the look.
