Cyril,

Nice work on the lesson landscape.

You have a vivid imagination on the other landscape!!  Seems like you did it on Good Friday.  The central tree looks like Christ hanging on the cross.

 :) Nice to see the landscape drawings!  Keep up the good work!  I really enjoyed Dennis' lessons!  And I really liked drawing dogs with Nolan, too!  I never drew with pencils at all until I happened upon Paint Basket 5 years ago!
  :thankyou: Dennis and Nolan and all the PB folks who support one another's art work on this forum!  :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

Diane,

Good first attempts.

The more you look at a tree, then draw it, the better you get.

I find that lights and dark with a believable shape make a good tree.

Oh, yes and a good textured bark (unless it's a tree with a smooth bark).

 DIANE, It is as MEA said.  Looking at different trees and lots of drawing practice will help your trees look better and better.   Your sunlit and shadow areas are defined more correctly in your large single tree.  -Liz
