 :) Linley, I'm with Sharon because I like both pieces.  I really like the drawing, but I think the second painting is gorgeous with the dark roots adding good contrast with the beautiful muted background.  O0 ~Liz

Thankyou EVERYBODY. I was sure I'd said thank you before to some of you, but it seems I might have forgotten to post it and so the comment disappeared into the ether... I get a bit muddled sometimes. I've been thinking of adopting the Muddled-Headed Wombat as my Avatar. :thankyou:

Good drawing andthe painted version isn't too bad either. Maybe you can do it again on the correct paper if you want to add colour.

Hi, Teresa. Thank you. Actually, I've just found a technique for flattening it on YouTube. It seems to be working so I might mat it at least. And , yes, I probably will redraw it on the correct paper later on. I've just finished redoing the Abandoned Homestead in extreme detail. I'll post that in the next few days.
