Don't worry, I'm definitelly alive. I have an extraordinarily difficult semester at the university and I'm too exhausted to scan an already painted image, not to mention painting something new.
Thank you for sharing your opinion. A "sous-bois" is a forest themed picture, isn't it? I don't speak french and Google translator didn't occured very helpful this time, so it's just a guess. Painting trees is relaxing and focuses mainly on light and colours. That's actually what I can do best. Painting buildings and streets requires more accuracy and use of perspective. I treat it as a challenge.
