Dennis;
I'm watching the last lesson and when you dropped the darker color into the burnt sienna of the front bushes along the shoreline, when do you know that you can dry it? How do you know if it's 'merged' enough?  Just by your own eye?  I've seen spots still moving when the dryer is on. LOL
Thank you.

 ::) Difficult question to answer directly as only experience counts here. Practical observation and constant practice.

I can show and tell you how to do it, but only when you do it yourself can you start to experience what actually happens. It's like learning to ride a bicycle. You have to fall off and scrape the elbows a few times before the balancing become habitual.  :whistle:
