Lake in New Zealand

Lake in New Zealand - student project

Painted from a photo I took in New Zealand years ago. I really enjoyed how Rosalie showed how free you can be with a permanent marker pen and the effect it gives. Unfortunately the photo of my drawing is a bit washed out.

I did struggle a bit with the leafy bushes at the front and balancing too much detail vs not enough detail and I wondered if there are any tips on approaching this type of detail?

Above is the image with darker green added to the leafy section at the front. I feel this has made it feel more complete. I also went over other sections to intensify the colours.
