Cape Disappointment Lighthouse #8-9

From this point on I typically add details to the most blaring areas first. The first areas catching my attention are the two areas on the cliff where the mastic was applied. They are way too bright and the wrong shape. I apply a light wash of earth tones to both bringing the values more in line. OK, they are less blaring.

Now I add shapes and colors as I see them from my reference images beginning with the middle area.
