You guys, your encouragement is so uplifting! Thank you!

Here's the first tree, a crabapple. I wish I hadn't picked one with so few leaves.Thumb of 2010-12-03/Sofonisba/a166bc

Oh Harper....how beautiful.

I really love the magnolia, and the way you shaded the underside to make the topside show up. you did the same on the Japanese maple. Beautiful. And negative work like that is hard to do, I know.

Good for you! Thanks for showing us. We would have driven you nuts if you hadn't.

@ Sheryl ... about your signature line. I don't have it. Most of my stuff is "out of the box." Whistling

Thank you everyone! Sharon, I wish I had chosen trees with more leaves to catch the highlights and shadows like the magnolia and maple. With the crabapple, I tried to show depth by fading the branches that were 'behind'. I have no idea why I chose a crabapple with no leaves. I did that one in September. The pine was very difficult. I know what you mean - it looks flat. Oh well! There's room for growth!

Mine too, Chris. I also can't color within somebody else's lines.

Harper, not so flat, but working the negative is an excellent magical way to produce the affect of depth.
Most things need that exaggerated contrast when working with 2-D.

Ya done good, Kiddo.

Sharon, I agree about working in negative. How would you go about drawing pine needles in the negative? I struggled with that one the most.

Don't draw the needles.
Draw the darkness behind them.
Really hard to do, though.

Try it with just a small branch, a real close up.
