Tree of difficulty

Well I finally managed the french-knot sheep, but then I decided I needed a tree in the foreground.

An indefinite blob-tree was too blobby for something in the foreground, so it had to have branches.  The first two got unpicked and this is what we're left with.  I think it works OK now!  The line of sea in the distance was a late addition as well.  The problems all come from thinking too much...


Now I just need to leave it alone and find a frame...

  1. I might have been tempted to add a 'french knot whippet X' chasing the sheep!

  3. Lovely! And I like how you've done the edge too, I keep trying to work out how to do that and failing at the moment.

  4. Knowing when to stop is an art in itself, but this looks just right.
