Call a Dance - a mixed media painting tutorial

Call a Dance
Cyndi Lavin, 2017

I got a lot of enjoyment out of painting Longing a few weeks ago, so I decided to do a small series featuring trees with personalities.  My second one was inspired by the W.B.Yeats poem The Cat and the Moon:

"When two close kindred meet,
What better than call a dance?"

The technique used is basically the same as for the painting Longing with only a small color variation.  I used Phthalo blue and Dioxazine purple for the sky rather than Phthalo blue and Phthalo green.
