After reconsideration, the painting was too unbalanced and I wanted the focus points in the painting to frame the picture more. I have lengthened the tree branches to give it more height and made the leaves curve around into the sky. I have also defined the plants in the foreground more, and added some more texture with a palette knife and rougher brushes. To further balance out the painting I wanted to calm the sky. Although I like the messy brush stroke look, I still want to make conscious decisions to make it controlled and intended. To do this I have blended the sky using the same colour palette and will later add in some clouds using a softer brush technique to achieve a more illustrative and dreamy appearance.
