All the Courage I Could Muster
I rallied every ounce of courage I could and went "Darker!" with my tree. I also darkened up a bit of the foreground, too. It goes against my nature to not darken EVERYTHING. Artistic know-how passed down through the generations says keep it intense in the foreground. Let the stuff in the back mellow out into the distance.
My countless hours spent in coloring books says "Everything is in the same plane!" Sometimes instead of practice makes perfect, you get practice makes artistically retarded.
