Unfinished Business

I ended up going back to finish off this pic of the tree in Merrion Square park yesterday despite my misgivings due to the thunder rumblings overhead and our conversation in the cafe(will post photo of the tree in question for comparision - lots of artistic license was used) when I got home I used some acrylic white in a light wash to fade the trees and vegetation in the background to help make the tree in front stand out more.

and heres another version of the pic of James Joyce
