Work in Progress~! Fall market!

I just love Fall subjects. This is a local Farmers Market that sells all the usual fall goodies including all kinds of apples! Yes, it really is painted that color! As you can see, I have a pretty good start on it. I tried to paint the wall gradually getting duller as it gets farther back - same goes for the pumpkins and flowers. This pic really isn't very good - the pumpkins really glow. I used a bit of blue in the highlight - complimentary colors work great as highlights!

Now, I decided to work on the reflections in the glass. They were quite detailed. I paid more attention to the detail closer to the viewer. This took quite a bit of time and I still need to do more on the reflections. I may need to dull the close one a bit so it doesn't look like you are seeing through the glass. I also may need to adjust the colors and brightness once I add the trim color which is next on the agenda. I also worked on the open door area. That may need darkening a bit later. Everything is in relation to the other colors so I want to get the trim on before I adjust anything else. FYI that big blob in the middle will be a large hanging petunia basket - kind of looks like an octopus right now:)
