Mushrooms - student project

I was thinking whether to post this project or not because it was supposed to do in a painterly manner. But as I really enjoyed working on it, I decided to share it. :) 

I sketched some forms of mushroom from photos and arranged them but then painted the composition without any reference.   

Thank you Emma for this class!

I have painted individual mushroom forms before and once attempted to paint a group of mushrooms which I then thought as a failed attempt. Here is the image of it:
