I still don't get these. I absolutely love them but I am so puzzled as to how you do them and still keep that transparency. I would so love to see a step by step demo.

This picture has some similarities to an artist called Ronald Jesty (?think that's the name). His trees have the same look. Have you seen any of his work? I think this is a very interesting painting - lots to look at and consider which, for me, makes an excellent piece of work.
