This one took a different path than I intended, but I am pleased with the result. I laid down that orange for the base color, but once I did, I realized it had to stay. A similar thing happened with the tree. I dropped it in pretty swiftly, and then decided that it wasn't too far from done. I think that the light in the foreground could have more shimmer, but that's something to work on.

Here's the process.
