Knowing what you like to paint is important.  I often look for two things in a scene:  interesting shapes and lacy things against the sky.  This scene has both.

When rendering lacy things, be sure to vary the value of the objects.  Overlapping also helps.  If the lacy stuff is all dark, it  will read not as lace but as pasted on things. It will also place all the lacy things on the same plane. 

Go easy on the paint when painting lines and lace against the sky.
