    Wondering just how good this amazing painting would have been if you had "concentrated". It's lovely Katie. Fine job.

    ... "Let me count the leaves..." I don't suppose Elizabeth Barrett Browning would mind a bit of a take-off on one of her more famous lines inspired by this visionary painting? ...

    Coops, you do have a real gift with composition. You often use a limited color palette and simple, elegant line work to good effect. This image is no different. Love the blues and greens. There's a lot to learn from here.
