More About This Painting

I started this painting by creating some calligraphic marks, choosing parts to cut out and lay on the board. For my focal point I tried a small red piece of calligraphy but it didn’t work for me so I ejected it for a black mark which I think was more successful. The red curve to the right of the tree detracted from the tree itself so I traded it for a light red shade to the left of the tree, and also changed the whitish shape to a light green over the original light red. Then I glued down the calligraphy with medium.
