Looks good to me, Louisa. I think you did very well.   I love the look of bamboo. 

I have been planning to do this one, only I am substituting some red palm trees instead.  My neighbor has them in her yard.  They are quite rare.

you have done a great job Louisa :clap: :clap: :clap:
What you can do is increase the left to right contrast in the bamboos - that will make them look more round. You can do this with a glaze or colour wash O0

Nolan your bamboos are so real looking, it makes me anxious to start your classes.  I will start the oil in about a month though.

Louisa you did pretty good too on your bamboos, it will be great once you have the rounding.

Louisa, I just did a dry brush (just paint a very thin layer using very little paint on the brush) for my reflections, you can do the same for your shadows O0

My grandchild Anouk insisted that this is a Panda painting and it's hers now.

That's priceless Louisa.... of course you realize she will need a Panda painting to go with it.....  :whistle:     :2funny:

Love the colourings you've used, the one thing I would consider altering is the surf line runs right through the joint of the single stalk of bamboo. Minor really, but otherwise very well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
