  1. very nice tutorial. Love the colors and texture

  2. I love that you showed the process. Your use of colour is very nice and how you painted in layers. The movement in the tree is wonderful. I love Piet Mondrian and love your idea of emulating his work.

  3. Nothing like the Piet Mondrian I think of when I see his name, but this is simply gorgeous. Very, very impressive. Circles are always fun.
