I think this has more dimension now. I like the vignetted style, leaving a lot of it white and fading off to white.
If you've never painted on gessoed paper, try it. Just brush plain white gesso on regular watercolor paper (104# works fine), let it dry completely, and paint. You can add texture in the form of letting the brushstrokes show on the gessoes paper, or make it smooth by rolling over the gesso, while it's still wet, with a sponge roller. Your choice.
