After several tries, I finally got something to post! I think I had the most trouble with the trees, which still look more like a saw blade!

 :heeha: Great job Tony.  O0   It is difficult to just let go as it were when we first start. I suspect we have been so used to constraining ourselves, that the idea of initially just scribbling across the paper and expecting it to look like something is just totally foreign. That will pass as you practice more (you will hear that a lot!).  ;D

You've got all the basics here, mountains, trees, fisherman in boat, water, shadow and light! Just to give the reflections of the trees a looking more like reflections in water, try randomly and lightly dragging the edge of your rubber horizontally across the tree reflections. Not too many! It's easy to get carried away...just ask me!  :heeha:

Over all, job well done Tony!  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Thanks for the feedback Val! Hmmm, that fisherman is not going to catch anything if his line is not in the water! I just noticed I forgot the fishing line!

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Good job Tony.  As I said before, after taking a photograph to upload, you will find so many things that you should have done and never did.  I find that all the time.  Anyway, you are doing a good job.

I thought he had, but I just checked and he didn't either.

Well, finally got the Draw a Ball (more like a coconut!) exercise done. I thought I had figured out how to make the picture show up right side up, but...



There you go Tony!  O0
Cheers, Val
