I built up some darker values on the cornstalk painting. I came to a point where I wasn't sure what to do with the background. I indicated a cornfield at the top, but was trying to avoid getting too detailed, which inevitably I do. I really wanted to have more "lost and found" edges, but so far, it's not happening. I decided to go darker with the background grass and maybe I need to darken it up even more on the left side. I'm now wondering if I should darken up the area behind the boy as well? Maybe that will help to push it back.
