    Thanks.
    I made my best trees after doing your online class. It gave me good
    ideas. I like starting at the top of the tree and working down
    instead of starting at the bottom.

    Thanks. Our art teacher in the Senior Community I live in is very
    much into trees. One of the first projects was drawing a forest.

    them. I like drawing nature, flowers and birds. I decided I
    am drawing what I like not what he likes. I did your bird classes. I have a lot of photos of the birds migrating in my yard.

      Yes, draw what you like, not what any teacher likes. We are doing this for ourselves and to connect us with the world. We never have to show, our work to anyone unless we want to. If you enjoy it, that connection will come through in the work.
