Here was my third Lord of the Rings painting. It was my first time working with transparent paints too. I placed the tree and stars stencil and painted the background over it all. It turned out pretty well and I was pleased with it. When I pulled the stencil off, however, I saw exactly how dark the background was in comparison. There was a lot of underspray as well. I went over the tree and stars with white to add the foggy glow effect which turned out alright, but I messed up a couple places. Then I went over it with a very light blue to try to darken it to reduce the contrast with the background. I've decided that I'll probably just redo this particular piece. This was done in about three hours, but I learned a lot in the process.
