 :2funny: Ah Dennis, you are lovely.   :2funny:

Jennylynn, keep practicing, keep patience and it will come.  If I can keep my patience and keep practicing I might be able to paint a tree one day too!   ;D  I think you're doing brilliantly...keep at it   O0
Cheers, Val

You ARE getting there!

I love your figures..They feel REAL to me.  well done.

Something else I noticed, You captured something a lot of people miss, Your foreground tree. Notice where the main right hand branch joins the trunk...many people do NOT carry the shadow from the branch over onto the trunk.   You did!

we all learn from each other, glad you're here

Nice variety of paintings as usual, well done everyone  :clap:.  I had a bit more luck with this one than with the summer trees which went in the bin  :whistle:  Looking forward to autumn

anita-your painting has a nice sense of balance, seems you mastered the mega-liquid frisket application-looks very even, my attempt was blotchy, and haven't tried to re-do yet

Very nice painting  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Glad to see that the back trees have not had masking fluid (Is my imagination that it had masking fluid and you painted over them to subdue them?)

Here are many fine spring trees. Anita have you used salt on the two small trees behind?. I had some difficultys with this one but here is now my contribution at last, after several failed attepts.

Nice job Harald - I really like what you did with the foreground  :clap:  I didn't use salt or masking or anything on the back trees. 

Gail ... swings and roundabouts as I much prefer your looser masking  ;D
