Jigsaw - 70

Here you can clearly see the red I've started to introduce into the uppermost branches...I'm really just feeling my way with this one, i know I've seen trees that have caught the setting sun on their top branches before. I still intend to darken the reds more and deepen the shade of the trunk.In fact there's still quite a lot to cover on my actual head...currently there's a white outline
which would be appropriate if the moon were behind me....but it's not..so at some point I'm going to have to soften that effect and probably add more colour.
You might also notice I decided to lose a few stars...I might lose a few more before long!

Hi Gemma!Thanks for visiting...!(ps I do also have a selection of my work on the MOB site if you fancy taking a look...although none of it compares with the wonderfully colourful and stylish paintings you have made.
