Swithland Woods in Inktense .... and some gouache ... editing update

Swithland Woods, Inktense, a bit of pen and now some gouache and a touch of pastel. in S&B A4 sketchbook

As I said, I wasn't happy with the background foliage (here) - so today I used it as an example of editing/adjusting for my class.   I won't finish the foreground off, it's still just a sketch but I was able to regain the highlights with gouache and intensify some darks, simplifying both but keeping the complexity of the foliage.

Really helpful to see what you've done, Vivien. I am sure it helped your class, too. I learn so much when folks like you and Katherine Tyrrell share your works in progress. Thanks, so much.

Thanks Annie :>) I'm glad it was helpful. I thought Katherines first go at a video was excellent - maybe that will be her next publishing offer once the book is out?
