I'm just about finished with this level, the very back. Some will disappear but what does show thru needs to be right. (Just my thing.)
Leaves Leaves and more leaves.......somewhere along the way I made the decision this one was not winter..! Perhaps a summer's eve.............
There are 3 colours here plus the light grey thread silhouettes.
And I decided I would have some evergreens.
And the trees on the far right have deep shadow as well as partial backgrounds in several shades.
( Remember this is all greys)
Complete? background. The weight on the right will be balanced as I move forward.
