I started the course with drawing a tree, and I finish it with two trees.
I am looking forward to start on the other drawing lessons here.
Very satisfied with all I have learned so far, and many thanks to all nice people commenting on my drawings.

 :thankyou:

Wow, great drawings Vidar!
 :clap:

I think the second one (where you can see it all) looks a bit 'cartoon-like'. The main trunk seems a bit too curved.

...also, there looks to be an elephant hiding there at the bottom (lower right limb= trunk, hole beneath = mount, small knot above = the eye)

 :thankyou: AJM.
The tree is from the Troll Forest here in Norway. It is always very windy here, explaining the curvy tree, and the Trolls are all hiding in the trees, and I think you just described the one hiding here ,sort of elephant like. :heeha:

And even if this is not "true" it may be a tree in the spirit of Asbjørnsen and Moe. (Norwegian folktales) ;)

 :heeha: Excellent trees Vidar! You have learned the techniques well.  O0   With some of the windblown trees I have seen in my travels yours looks quite natural. I love the personalities that nature provides.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

 :clap:   Wow well done Vidar, that is an amazing improvement on your tree drawing. I love walking through the woods/forest and seeing all the woodland creatures depicted in the trees.
