Looks good to me, Louisa. I think you did very well.   I love the look of bamboo. 

I have been planning to do this one, only I am substituting some red palm trees instead.  My neighbor has them in her yard.  They are quite rare.

you have done a great job Louisa :clap: :clap: :clap:
What you can do is increase the left to right contrast in the bamboos - that will make them look more round. You can do this with a glaze or colour wash O0

Nolan your bamboos are so real looking, it makes me anxious to start your classes.  I will start the oil in about a month though.

Louisa you did pretty good too on your bamboos, it will be great once you have the rounding.
