Tree 1 or Brenham Tree

Wow it has taken a long time to transfer my tree bark image onto my screening.  I am too tired to get out my surger and linen foundation today.  I will do that tomorrow.  Have to have this done by Friday's workshop or I won't have anything to hook. 

I don't know how well you can see this in the picture to the left, but this is the bark that I drew by laying the copy underneath the screening and then just tracing the lines I wanted.

The object is not to have an object, but just color and value patches where I can hook in my scraps.  I am hoping to learn more about color composition through this rug.  I understand value fairly well now, but color combinations from scraps is a different story.  Wish me luck!
