BT - V2 - Day 2

The beginning of this style of canvas always looks completely disjointed and messy. It is.
We're only applying colour, not detail.

After I placed a quantity of fabric chips of the same fabrics as the base ( to soften the edges), I cut and applied about a half metre total of 5 colours of nylon lightly shaped to ovals. Again this softens the definition of the base fabric.

Next, using black sewing thread I cut and placed as randomly as possible 2 to 3 inch pieces to suggest the myriad of small branches in the crown.

Down to the middle, 4 different materials were finally cut and pointedly "scattered" over the transition point of the brown fabric. This area is the under story and is darker.
