favorite trees

I took a photo of these trees on the hill a few nights ago, I have been trying to find time to paint them since. I have to say that they are a bit enhanced by photoshop, just by asking to add contrast. Some one wrote on EDM that they liked what photo shop had done to their painting better than the painting, and I tend to agree. I must be more definite with my colour.
I was happy with this before altering, now I am not so sure.
Adelaide yesterday, walked in the Botanic Gardens, always nice to do, caught up with old (very old!) school friends, we all left school 50 years ago. Just five of us and we had a lot of fun reminiscing.

I like this - a lovely soft feel to it. Did you get much rain - we didn't.

Photoshop must be interesting to use. I don't have it -(well I haven't found it yet), but on another computer I have photo-edit and I sometimes go crazy with that because I can alter a pic by using negative, etc. I don't use the drawing facilities hardly at all. I only use about 2% of what a computer can do.

Cup gums maybe? I love the layout and the foliage colour and shade. This is a gorgeous scene Penny. You are a master (mistress?) with watercolours.
