I have been creating a lot of backgrounds lately, not necessarily for my concentration, but I always seem to reach a point where I just get stuck. Take the piece above for example. I have started a background but I have no idea what to do from here. I get nervous to put anything too bold or too heavy overtop because I am afraid it won't look right against the light watery feel the background has. And I am not sure if what I put overtop of this background should be shapes or lines or drawings from observation. Also, I am not sure if what I put overtop of the background should be done with paint or pen or charcoal etc. I have about five started backgrounds like this up in my room and I really want to do something cool with them so if anyone has some suggestions I would greatly appreciate it!

that looks like a rickity fence held together by drippy brown chewing gum with a little foilage growing on and around it. well done.
