A tangled tree

I had done a turquoise and green wash, and tangled this tree a while ago but couldn't figure out what to do with the background. I felt that more tangles would detract from the tree. In the end I decided simply to stay with the washiness of the background, adding a little more wash and some colored pencil enhancement. It may need a bit of fine-tuning, but I'm quite pleased with it!
This tangled tree is done on 8"x10" illustration board.
