Q&A with wgmcdonald

Nancy Ellen Thompson asked:
Really good drawing of the olive tree! I love the strength of the tree. You may want to lighten up some of upper branches in a couple of places with your kneaded eraser. This will give the tree a more realistic look. Keep posting!
wgmcdonald answered:
Thank you Nancy. I guess I should not have followed the photo so blindly (as it's branches look dark). Will take you advice and lighten up some of those upper branches. Thanks again.
