Having some basic watercolour lessons at my Over 55s Club with a retired teacher. We were given a choice of photos to take home and do a tonal painting. Did this one in burnt umber. I think it turned out ok. Any comments.
Thanks TeresaM

It's better than "ok," it's wonderful! I love how that tree is glowing in the sunlight.

I agree with EmmaLee - it turned out way more than just "ok" - I think it's terrific!
Cheers,
Sharon
