Well I just couldn't work with those strips of paper this time. In other circumstances I use them successfully to locate where other features were needed, before it was too late to add them.
But every time I walked past them this afternoon they irked.
So they went and I pinned in the auditions in cloth. Much better. Now I can see where I am in this piece.
The addition of a few bushy shrubs and ground embellishment as well as working all the tree bark in a similar manner will now unify this piece. Now I can stop for today.
( ps 197 DJ done, 28 to go
