Bruton Parish-Final Stage

"Bruton Parish"    
8"x"10 Acrylic on Canvas

With this final layer, I was chiefly concerned with tweaking details.  It's the little extra push that makes a painting resemble reality: a shadow here, a highlight there, a light on a blade of grass, a reflection in a window.  

I will allow it to dry for several days and then I'm going to ship it to my Aunt Mary who lives in Williamsburg.
