This is a fun study of a Robin and her chicks. I still can't quite get tree's, so any advice is welcome

Love the chicks, I can hear them chirping for dinner.  You got the 1/2 feathered thing on them so well I think.
Yes, the trees need more rough texture maybe, depending on what type they are of course.
Would some dark on both sides and light in the center make them look more curved maybe?  Sorry I am no good at doing bark on trees either so am no help there.

I have re-worked the tree trunks and while better they're not quite right. I think I will sit on this for a while and I might see what could be improved. In the meantime I welcome suggestions.

I like that much better; but as I said I am no good when it comes to tree bark.  It just looks better to me now though, good job.

OK! I have re-worked the tree trunks and changed the colour. I like this much better, but I might try again later

It looks good; but then I also really liked the second one you posted.  The trees have changed variety now to me :)
You have some nice bark variation going on now, good job.


I wish someone else would comment that you help you more than me; which would be anyone ;D


Have a good day.

Thanks Brandy for your comments. I too wish I could get more comments and suggestions, but I really appreciate the few I do get.

Brandy -  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:   I know exactly what you're saying which is why I don't think I've ever really added anything to art appreciation by o t h e r s  :2funny: - anyone but me so you cracked me up... :2funny:   




Alan -


What I really like in your painting is what I felt as a touch of whimsy while at the same time, I found it very sweet and it honestly made me smile spontaneously.  That's the extent of my technical asseSSMENT SKILLS.  I LOVE IT!!! :clap:

I like paintings that remind me of spring!  ...can't wait!

Nice painting and the title suits it perfectly.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Yes, Rkymtnmary, I feel like I know exactly zero so am not really comfortable with giving advice to others; but sometimes maybe we can help even just a little bit.  I don't know.   :confused: :heeha:

Well, Brandy, all I can say then is zero - zero is still zero so that makes two of us... :2funny:
