Good job Sherri. It wasn't as easy as it looked.  I am still busy with mine, have to watch the lesson in parts because of time constraints.  Anyway, I am getting there.

I know I watched mine in parts too.  My husband is disabled and had a bad night last night.  He couldn't sleep so I set up with him and drew!!!!

Sherri,

Nice work. 

I jumped back and forth to the reference photo a couple times, but the only thing that struck me that could be improved is the leaves.  They just need to be more filled in; they seem too skeletal.

Otherwise, I think you did well.

They both look lovely and mysterious. I really like how the leaves look like lace.
Nice job ladies. :clap:

Sherri, I feel you can still darken the outsides some more to increase the "looking in" effect O0

Here is my misty forest, it took longer than I thought it would.  Thank you Nolan for this lovely lesson.  I also added a dark tree to the left hand side to stop the eye to get out of the picture.
