Dear... I'm proud of your efforts.
Since I've now have just seen the original photo, you're having
problems with the leaves aren't you?
My boyfriend painted with aquarelas and oils, he was quite talented. I was always puzzled how he did the leaves... he used several different brushes and autumn colours, and quick dots (his problem was the little branches),
see this gallery [link]

umm..i know the both sides are not the "exactly" the same..but i am fine with that
I just really wanted to fix the branches.
leaves are not really my problem..they are quite easy to do for me..but this online painting business is going to take a while to sink it. I guess what I am trying to say it. the leaves do not bother me as much right now..maybe soon i will actaully bother to make them the way i want to. but right now i have other important paintings waiting for me..:D

as the background was all over..and there were few ity bity details that i could have been more "neat" about so i just did them

oh Leonid is great! he is amazing really..have been fallowing his work for years..but he uses a knife. and his style is very different from mine. ;)

but thank you very much non the less..
I see what you mean, partial though, cause I don't know how the work online is done.
That's cool, cause I know his work even before I've joined DA, with an ID... only pointed him out because my late boyfriend used a technic similiar to it... he used a curve blade that usually is used by shoemakers he loved that tool.

me too! known his work even before DA :P
That is so cool!!
