I have scrubbed the branch right out now, but the paper is overworked and it keeps looming up. I tried a few of those grounds and covers you can buy for watercolor, but they looked bad and got milky when painted on.

Here i decided that the branch going up and out the middle of the painting had to go. It cut the painting in half and drew the eye up and out of the painting. I tried shortening it, but..no. — at UBC Botanical Garden.

I am not liking that branch heading up and out the center of the painting.
