Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. As this class (and lesson) is about composition and light/shadow as well as colour, I had decided to upload these pics as part of the composition

Is the piece for sale? No

What are you most proud of? How I was able to capture the light and shade, especially the reflections from the tree branches. They are 'bathed' in a golden light from the sunset.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The picture is divided into 'thirds', with the shadows from the houses (and other gum trees) in the foreground, the trees in the middle and the afternoon blue sky in the background
