Second go at my Nevada City Trees is looking good. Moving from 5x7" to 8x10" requires a shift in the design structure, and the color palette inevitably shifts along with it. This version has more purple and gold in the first layer of paint. I've also thought about how the sky and ground meet, simply from almost botching the skyline in the first painting.
The paint will be dry enough by this weekend for the second layer. Here's the earlier stage.
