It's been awhile since we finished the class, but here's a picture of the last project. This is actually an attempt to recreate one of the instructor's AMAZING works - with his permission, of course. You can see Kit's picture here (click on the word "here" to go to his site). His drawing is incredible in person, with gentle placement of color with pastels, accents with conte crayon, etc.
This was a very difficult assignment - you're looking at 6 hours of work, with lots to go. I don't think I'll finish this piece, but I'll certainly do more tree drawings in the future.
