As I work on the tree it goes in stages. The first thing I painted the other day was the Spanish moss. Here is a detail of it. I work it very soft and wispy. Then I began the leaves and continued across the tree. I added small white flowers on the vine on the trunk and extended the vine some.
Next I will add more Spanish moss at the request of my clients and paint tall grasses along the bottom edge of the mural. A couple of cats will also take their places. That should about wrap it up. Keeping my fingers crossed.
