This colour one was to try to get some colour going but to also study how Neil Ross is so graphical in his work I think the trunk turned out nice but I'm not so happy with the overal shape & the green.
Using what I learned above I thought I'd try to get that working in a straight painting from some pictures of normal trees I had. They came out ok but I still feel they lake form.
This last one was probably something I wouldn't normaly paint as it has so much detail o try to get right but by studying all the techniques I felt more confident in trying. I kind o liked how it turned out but I did have problems with the water, but overal I think it's a win as now I feel more confident about this kind of detail.
