Hi Nolan,

Here is my new modified desert painting. I tried to work on the areas, you suggested me in my last post.
 I am still looking for your feedback.
Thanks a lot for your valuable input. It means a lot n a lot to me.

Abhi,

You are making good progress. 

Here's a thought - try to give your tree bark a bit of texture.  I was practicing making tree bark the other day on a palm tree and I just added little sguiggly lines in wet-on-wet oil and it came out great.  Not sure if that would work in acyrilics, though.

Abhi,

I just looked again at your tree bark, but this time I pushed my laptop screen back and your tree darkened a bit. 

So, you did have more shading than I thought.  It would not take much to add just a bit more of texturing.

much improved, well done :clap: :clap: :clap:

PS - I merged this post with your previous one, it's always best to keep all updates about one painting together as it makes it easier to follow the painting's progress.   O0
