Sure was a tough one tonight! I am trying to paint lighter but this is one I had set aside because I didn't know how to finish it. All I had was the tree limb and some green background and I knew it needed more. Initially, it was going to be about texture, but the little bird told me it wanted to perch there!
I really like working on this surface, an Ampersand gessoboard panel! Guess I need to order some more...(since I am selling a few more paintings.)
