Pat I'm so sorry about your husband-I hope he is doing better-remember to take care of yourself as well.  :1hug:

Glad to hear you made it through the storm okay Nina-wind damage can be a real pain-hope everything settles down.

Doina and Rhetta I had to grab my big #30 round in order to keep up with Dennis and his #8 round.  :heeha:

My painting looks more clear in person-I had to take this one with my phone and I'm just not that good with pictures on it.

.
Dennis  :thankyou: for your course, always well explained throught the class. :twothumbs: :flowers:
The ? I was trying to say during class was about all the  ( holes) are we to make a rounding on the side of each one of them.

Excellent painting, Danielle :clap: :clap: :clap:

Because you tree is standing more into the painting area it needs a shadow on the left side of the tree on the ground (Light is from the right side). I would also suggest you darken up the forground a bit more but not in the path area. This will improve your painting even more O0

Danielle, I forgot to answer your question re the roundings at the holes on the tree. :blush:

Assuming the edges of the holes have rounded edges and one is looking slightly from the side and not straight into the hole - then the side nearer to you will show a sharp edge while the opposite one will show the rounding.
The nearer edge curls around out of sight so the will be a sharp edge. On the opposite side you see the inside BEFORE you reach the edge and then see it become the outside of the tree.

Hope this makes sense.

 :thankyou: Dennis for the explanation of the holes and the advice on the shade/shadows and darkening of the forground.   I though it was a bit to light.  Here is my correction. Please let me know if I can improve more.   
 :thankyou: Natalie

Danielle,

I have never done watercolor, so I can't comment on technique; however I think think painted visually looks fantastic.  Definately worthy to hang on a wall   :clap:
