One of the most feminine of trees.....IMHO.

Any relation to Twiggy? I'm afraid she's a little frail for hugging tho.

Nice one Peter!

Getting into detail with those branches. Works nicely.

:D :D :D

You did the tree and its branches in a really skilled way. The background looks dreamy.

I did a little more on the foreground.........I wasn't satisfied

What do you think about to cover just a bit (with some longer grass-blades) the tree trunk at its base?
Because like that the tree seems "hanging" or floating over the ground.
Anyway, i think the grass you added below its a very good idea...
It give more depth and armony to the whole paint!

Ways better then before! :wink:

Thank you
DAkey those branches were very tiring......done with the mouse?I can't get used to Océane's tablet!

Drake Blake thank you for the suggestion it's clearly better........

Bumble thank you very much.

I think it's finished now in it's various forms and I've decided not to post the one with the stampeding herd of bison...................it was too cluttered!

Best to you

You did that with a mouse? Crikey!
Well the last one is a work of art - it's perfect, and dont you dare touch it again.

Best to you

hi peter a great one :D love the tree...esp the version with grss at the bottom which as drake said grounds it....the patience you must have to do all the branches by mouse.

a suggestion Sweedie made that helped me get used to the tablet was to tape a peice of drawing paper over the work area...gives resistance so its more like real world drawing...worth a try perhaps?

Hello Peter, I really like the second. I am really admiring of so much talent and to know how to make. I like the colours that you used and the branches of this tree are magnificent in the brought details.
Really a big bravo for this realization and for your patience.
