I think my trees look more like Japanese maples than cherry trees, lol.
This first one seemed a good place for a quote from Leonard Nimoy--his last tweet from a few days before his passing.
Sorry for the crease. I intend to sew these together into a journal once the class is done, and I've got all the pages pre-folded. I didn't think to leave a few unfolded for pieces like this.
A little closer to cherry blossoms this time.
These were all done with a Yarka St. Petersburg pan set on Arches paper. I decided I don't like the Raw Sienna, though it was better mixed with the Golden Ochre. The Neutral tint was used for shadow and Scarlet for the umbrella and glow.
I started my figures too close to the edge for the size and ended up with slighty stunted characters.
A little better figures here, but I think I got my count off while trying to go for a body that was 7 head lengths. All in all, it was great fun, and I hope I get a chance to play further by the time you see this.
