This painting was destined to be scraped off as I couldn't figure out how to get the effect of bare branches that I wanted. So I figured it was safe to experiment -love that when it works out! So I began to remove the paint from the thin branches with my brush. This allowed some of my red underpainting to show through and gave me the transparent look that I was seeking. I love the subtle colour  harmonies (split complement -not planned, just what turned out) in this painting, and I really think it captured the feel of the day. I am always pleased and consider a painting to be successful if it meets that criteria.

Enjoy!
