Gum Trees

Acrylic. 5"x7" using Ree's gum tree challenge reference picture.


  1. A good effort JJ...I know you have a struggle with trees, it's just takes practice...;)

    The values in the foreground are too dark... also the colour of the bark area is not correct, needs to be a pale blue gray to mauve gray, just vary it a bit, also work on the values in the foliage... ;)

  2. I think this looks pretty good! My only nit is just that there is not enough light areas on the foreground trees...maybe some on the tree trunks would be good and tone down the white on the distant tree trunks.

  3. So that's what a gum tree looks like ....lovely!
