Arty, thanks. I'll confess: I do want to paint faster, I'm much too slow. This is the second piece I have put a time limit on, 30 minutes. So, a time limit and a new to me medium results in starts, rough drafts. I just slammed those trees in before stopping, even though I went over my time limit by 10 minutes. I'll keep at it, to see what I can learn. So glad you like the trees.!
Sno, thanks. Your words are so encouraging.
Nufocus, thanks. Your comment is instructive and appreciated.
