One of the descriptions that most fascinated me in 20kLUtS was that of the petrified forest through which Aronnax and Nemo pass to reach the ruins of Atlantis. As I haven't really drawn or painted trees much before, I had a bash at it. The composition is insanely busy, but actually getting to grips with the twisty, winding shapes was handy.
Also, apologies for not being in on Friday, I was somewhat busy being in A&E and getting my broken foot cast. Could somebody let me know what I missed? Thanks!
