This is my latest piece to have on the drawing board. I haven't even named it yet. I put some texture down on top of a base color and that was fun. At this stage is has the trees "blocked" in with a textured paper that I have painted on top of. Some ask me why I put paper down and sometimes paint right over it...and the answer is simply the texture makes the paint go on in a great way that just lends itself to the different types of bark I do.
I've made more paper cast aspen leaves that I will consider adding later on. But, alas, they are drying in the sun right now.
