The basic dark shapes of the tree trunks go in here. I've mixed burnt sienna and ivory black for a really dark color. Pure black might be too dark, looking like a cut out hole instead of a trunk. I'll work around and over the top branches.
Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more,
love more, and all good things will be yours. Swedish Proverb
All colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites. Marc Chagall
"Thriving as an artist--in all of its forms--our entitlement to our lives and livelihood, our imagination, our believed limitations, our expectations and dreams for our work, our professionalism, our perceived competition and, most importantly, our JOY, requires the serving of an eviction notice to the voice of doubt squatting inside us." Sara Genn
