Crunch time has arrived.  It is time to add the trees and shrubs to the water's edge, a task I usually find very daunting.  After all this work I don't want to mess it in this last stage.

I started with this...

And after adding the trees and some shrubs...

 I ended up with this, and was devastated.  My worse fears came true - I screwed up and ruined the painting.  I tried to fix it...
and only made things worse.  In a fit of total despair, and a bit of anger, I picked up the palette knife and let myself go.
 And suddenly...the painting was saved, and I liked it.

Now I'll look at it for a week to see if any minor changes need to be made.
