Finishing up the Highlights

I have filled in all of the highlights here. The next challenge is to have variation of color in the light and shadow areas to reflect the light flowing across the wall. This is the most difficult to do and the thing that makes the painting the most interesting. I will most likely have to go over the painting several times to get the exact effect that I want. I am pretty happy with the the color palette of the painting so far. This is the first painting that I have done reflecting Santa Fe colors since I moved here. The dusty purples, blues and pinks seem to give the landscape a mystical element.
