When I looked at the finished painting my eye wasn't cooperating with my plan! My eye wanted to follow the yellow green strip of light in both directions which was good but I was also drawn off the painting on the right because I had let the pathway of light go all the way to the edge. (see below)
It was subtle. But it needed to be fixed. It was an easy adjustment. All I needed to do was Scumble a bit of the darker green over the edge of the strip of light. I slightly darkened the exit creating a visual block or barrier. I want to keep the viewer in my painting for as long as possible!
