Funeral tree over Moss Oak, work in progress

‘Poisoned Apple’ work in progress

After roughing out a few versions to get the composition right, I sketched out the basics in paint (acrylics) and then went got more detailed.
The ‘wallpaper’ was a rubber stamp, I then did several acrylic washes over it to fade it out until just an impression of it remained (I didn’t want it to conflict with the figure in the middle). I later added drawn cracks on there to give the impression of a fine house or palace that was falling into ruin under her influence.
