My collage was very spotty, so my next step was to integrate the background with lots of washes. In some cases, I painted around elements, and in other I painted right over them.
But then I saw that I didn't like the big dark purple blob in front of the cat, so I added a few more collage elements to mostly cover it up. I also added collage elements to try to reduce the effect of the large peony to the right with its warm reddish background.
Now it's time to let this layer dry and assess where to go next.
