Settings and landscapes are another subject I don't paint very often, so these Make Art That Sells course prep assignments are really pushing me out of my comfort zone.

I'm going to declare myself quite satisfied with my rough attempts, for now at least. If I intend illustrating for children's books I shall have to practice loads more I suspect!
