"Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye.. it also includes the inner pictures of the soul" ~Edward Munch (famous for the painting "The Scream")
day 4: the finished painting

This painting is for sale (with more photos too): https://www.etsy.com/listing/167714236

day 3: creating the pre-painting composition (using Adobe Photoshop)
Some cropping, image enhancement and we're good to go.
