Well here is my painting of the springtime trees. Had some problems, but like Dennis says they are  for us to learn, and for others to learn from our mistakes.  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Nina, you did very well with the springtime trees.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

I think you did everything Dennis taught in the lesson.  The two back trees are especially well done.

I'll be moving on to the summer trees next.

I'm looking at my my winter scene with a critical eye as well, could do better next time.

I always admire anyone who does an exercise more than once.  I have patience, but not that much!  :2funny:

I painted a springtime scene in the heat of summer.

Five paintings done this week, one each day.  One more to go to get caught up.  I aimed to get to the finish but I didn't quite make it. 

I won't be painting tomorrow, my house needs attention and so does hubby. 

I'm looking forward to the next class.   :yippee:

I just took another look at my painting.  That tree on the left looks like an animal, which animal???  It makes me laugh!   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

 :thankyou: Bhavna,

I still think I made the tree on the left look rather cartoonish.   :2funny:  See the tail and the front paws sticking out and that great big mauve head?  I'll see what I can do to change the twigs a bit. 

I'd love to start the autumn trees exercise but today was a day of getting caught up on housework etc.  I need to get some physical exercise anyway, too much sitting this week.  I loved being able to spend these hot, humid days doing little else but painting. 

I hope to see you in the class tomorrow.  :flowers: :flowers:

Well, now you've got me laughing too, Lillian...I NEVER would have seen the "reindeer" if you hadn't mentioned it!  It's fantastic!   :2funny:

Both of you have grasped the techniques I wanted to teach  :clap: :clap: :clap: Lillian, just be careful about making the smaller "spots" too regimented. They must be be more randomly placed and spaced. Otherwise  O0

Lots of little white dots there on the big tree.  Right you are, Dennis!   :thankyou:
