:think: No birds hidden in this one are there?  ::)

You caught me out, Val. Forgot the birds :2funny:

I so enjoyed the Blue Gum Tree from the earlier w/c class. I still stand by my bird was big enough...but that was one really big tree!  :detective: Just had to check!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

This was a fun class, too. Thank you Dennis. Do tell me your opinion to my piece. After reading the above conversation my hands itched to add some birds.  ;D.

Nice work, Gita.

The birds look quite proud to be in the picture.

I would love to see a bluegum tree in person.

I have not painted in a while since we moved.  I thought a lesson would help me get back into it.  Thanks Dennis, I enjoyed this one.  Not sure how I did on this as I felt really "rusty" painting.  To me, it looks like a cartoon......comments and suggestions very welcome.

This looks very nice to me, Mary Lou.  :clap: :clap: You could experiment with this by doing it again with a different palette.

Thank you Dennis for another enjoyable lesson.  The line and wash was a lovely change but I could not see the wood for the trees  :2funny: .  As always, I struggled.  Comments and critiques are happily received.  Thank you.
