 :thankyou: Dennis and Tousabella.

I couldn't resist having a go at attempting to to fix my tree.....However, daylight has now gone here, so I will wait until the morning to take another photo and post again.

Dennis - perhaps the art of being able to 'fix' is part of being an artist  >:(

Tousabella - I am totally enjoying using pastels as a medium. Fun and frustration can be found, all at the same time lol  :2funny:

I think my attempt to fix the tree has improved my picture?

Any further suggestions for improvements will be gratefully received  O0

Carey,

Yes, that's much better now. 

Main thing is that you learned not to make a tree in that manner again, so you can move on.

If you practice trees for a while, you will feel more comfortable with them.  I still struggle with trees, but am determined to master them.  Wish they were all alike - so many different shapes to learn.

aloha

Very good!!!  Yeah....Practice, practice.  LOL   I have trouble 'fixin' too, but as we go along, I can "see" what I have to add or take away.  It's so much fun!!

Here is the result of my attempt (struggle)  to draw the figures.
I should have put the persons more to the right in the picture, but they moved faster than me  ;)

Practice makes you better

Vidar,


Nice work on this.

You really did capture their brisk pace.  I really sense their movement.

Maybe add some leaves to cover some more of the trunk at the top.  Either that, or a strong wind sheered them all off!!!!

The distant mountains appear to be all the same tone.  Try varying to give some more distance.
