What a lovely piece David! Great and heartwarming story despite the serious undertone. It was easy to follow and understand the flow and I also really liked the scenery and architecture surrounding the girl as she moved about.. The main protagonist of the story - which I think really is the colour - comes across most effectively. Even more than art I much enjoy good storytelling and I really think you got this one down with a great use of the graphical storytelling medium. Wonderful! . Griatch
+The Wonderful Zeal I learned to paint trees pretty much by looking at photographs of trees and on the work of masters having done the same. And a bunch of practice over the years. I'm actually not too fond of painting trees with leaves (so much fiddly detail!), but snowy trees and ferns are fine.
