Burning and Painting Frosted Tree

Burning and painting this frosted apple tree will be a challenge. My wife and I were out for a drive in a landscape where every tree and tree branch were coated in rime. Even the frozen apples twinkled. Twas a glorious sight to see in the crisp air. The sun sparkled across the fields of snow. Shadows were deep blues and purples.

And so the challenge will be to burn an image into a wood panel and add paint that will do justice to that frosted image.
Here the drawing has been burnt into the panel, Some colour was added before I took a picture.

I have begun to block in the underpainting and then the layering will begin.
