So James drew the lines for the final tree piece and I got to colour it! See this post for the aims and inspiration for the drawing. Here’s a snippet of James’ original lines, this is isn’t the whole of it and the lines were cleaner than this in the end but I couldn’t find the full finished original in the group chat!! (Sorry James)
Below is my final coloured version! We kept the colour palette that the Nutshell group before us had left behind for us and thanks to Pinterest artists I learnt how to draw dappled sunlight!!(sort of)!! Pierre-Auguste Renoir would be so proud. The dark at the bottom was hard to work with; I really wanted it to look deep and massive, but I like it anyway!
