I used the lessons from my drawing to create this piece using "colored pencils" instead of paint.  Very pleased with the end result. :yippee:

I like the reflections of the plants in the water. I also like the colour saturation/contrast  :clap:.   O0

I really like the tree trunk in the foreground...the shading is good and you have given the trunk a nice texture. One thing I would mention, is to try not to outline the tree tops...I know its tempting, I catch myself doing it once in a while.  ::) Overall..well done and keep on practicing, its paying off. O0
