So this is just a series of layers with different brushes used on each to create a scene. I created a layer in the background of sky color and painted into it with grassy notes. I added a transparent layer on top of that and placed some cloud brushes on it. I added another transparent layer and placed a woodland brush on it. I created another transparent layer and painted a single tree on it using a different brush. By keeping the layers separate I was able to adjust and edit each conceptual layer without affecting or destroying the others.
