Tree color practice

Something a little bit different.
I'm working on my color theory, and I think it's starting to click, so my wife asked me to spend 20 minutes and use nothing but a hard brush to depict a sakura tree on a grassy hill with a stream in the distance. The left one was my first attempt, thinking about color theory. The second one is take two, having a slightly better grasp of color theory.

Steve Huston lecture 7

More Steve Huston studies. Connections and a bit of color theory.
