There were a few passages that I felt I could finish better in the studio. The reflection in the water, for example, was photographed by me on the very day there was no wind. The water was almost still and the ripples were slow, creating a soft distortion. I used a paint that was cut with 50% of medium, to get the "wet" look of the water. There were other passages, in the fullest places of the flowering blossoms, that I rendered from my photograph as well.
