Theme? Tree(s) in the distance. Okay, after a month-plus of working with oekaki, I found 3 things that annoyed me to no end.

3, no smudge tool...smudge and drag in real life, like with a pallet knife or a dry brush?!
2, variable brush sizes...if I got this, smudge would be less of a concern.
1, Each tool has it's own individual TEXTURE selections, I don't like. When one is on the roll and decide to switch brushes, the new brush has it's own TEXTURE selected from a previous use. This annoys me...having reallize someting is not looking right, UNDO, selecting the propper texture and continue where I left off.... broke my concentration.

I think it's bad design.

Anyways, this is my...8th attempt at this picture. The first several resulted in crashed browser sessions. It was on a differnt oekaki. I had 3 attempts on here, taco.

Why background? I needed to increase my experience with background. Why this? It was easy...watching Bob Ross (search Youtube?) and his 'happy trees' when I was tiny, I got some shows 'recored' in the back of my mind, hoping to actually play with oil someday. So, here is its: My happy trees!

thank you

I really like this. Like, a lot. I know what you mean about each individual texture, but I don't work with textures a whole lot so I don't find it that much of an inconvience, but I can see how it would be. Regardless, this looks exquisite.
