Class work - student project

Hi Sarah,

I will share some of my class work. The slinky method was a revelation for me, I've used it a lot since you mentioned it and it really allowed me to draw much more interesting structures for roots and branches.

I also went outside in the park to draw some trees that I saw around me, I will definitely be doing this more in future! I share some of the drawings below (the lower left is actually the tree of the drawing class and upper right is just an imaginary tree).

Lastly the gouache tree, I had a lot of fun doing this one! I do struggle quite a bit still with gouache, especially in getting the right consistency. I had already put a thick layer at the start before I heard your mention of only adding a light baselayer, oops!

Thank you for the great class, I couldn't have imagined progressing this much in drawing trees!
