This one was a struggle, but actually a great challenge too. I made it up and kept adding layers and depth, starting with acrylic then going to oils on top. Initially I wanted the entire thing to be filled with branches and fluttery leaves, but it just wasn't working. Finally I abandoned that idea and started knocking in the palest blue to make the sky show through. That made all the difference and then I fell in love with this painting.
