Press download to get the image.

On the third step I added some photo's mainly for texture and some colors, than resumed painting like normally on top.
They were set to "soft light"

But I felt like the photo's still dictated abit too mutch how it all turned out on the ground, it went abit beyond just adding some textures,
I should have stayed at stage two abit longer to work the image out abit more, that would have reducing the influense of the photos.

But at the final stage there were very little remains of the photo's as I had pretty mutch cleaned up and painted it over which was what I had intented to.

Also the photo's are not mine, so I dont want it to be a part of the painting outside random textured noise, it just works as a stepping stone so spice things up.

At the 5th image counting from top, I went over the image and used a soft round brush to add atmosphere, I do that at some stage with almost all my images.

And at the final stage, unsharp mask filter and some color dodge for the light.
