Admittedly pretty terrible water but it wasn’t really my purpose in this painting. I’m constantly working on foliage and I think the paint came off the brush roughly the way it was supposed to this time which is exciting for me. Shapes of bushes can certainly be better but I am happy with technique improvement.
I've just recently had a little more success with foliage using thinner instead of magic white and putting lots of paint on the brush so you don't have to push hard. I still fight with them a lot but I think I might be getting closer.
"Therefore am I still, a lover of the meadows and the woods, And mountains; and of all that we behold From this green earth; of all the mighty world Of eye and ear, both what they half create, And what perceive; well pleased to recognize In nature and the language of the sense, The anchor of my purest thoughts, the nurse, The guide, the guardian of my heart, and soul Of all my moral being." --WILLIAM WORDSWORTH Lines composed a few miles above Tintern Abbey

Great definition in your tree trunks. The leaves are quite nice. Currently one of the things I need a lot of help on.
