Last year we have had to cancel a trip to the West coast, so I chose to keep the dream alive through art.

I like how it turned out overall. I think the time of day (dusk? evening?…) could have been a little more clear and decisive, but I was hoping for a soft look rather than dramatic, so that part was achieved, at least. I liked exploring various ways to represent the trees and I like my final choice: with some refining I can see myself integrating this tree style as a personal touch in the future.

Thanks for the class — as always, it was full of useful tips, techniques and inspiration.
