Lovely Natalie, I really like the softness of this. I haven't seen this lesson, but just wondering about the possibility of sharpening up the tree itself just a bit, to show it off the light focused on it. I could be well off about this, one of those thoughts that seem to pop in one's head!  :crazy2:    ;D
Cheers, Val

Thank you ladies  :smitten:

I'll think about it Val-this lesson put me through the wringer and I need some time and space away from it!  ;D

It's lovely.  Great job!!  It's so soft and 'quiet'.  You are buzzin right along.  :painting:

Excellent Natalie. Very well done indeed :clap: :clap: :clap:  Just sharpen up the profile edges of the nearby rocks to separate them from the distance - this will highly  improve the painting :flowers:
