I don't know of this tree but your little branch and berries is gorgeous. Great colours the pink and orange and your texture created I really like? Reminds me to do some washes using this as it's been a while.

Lovely soft renderings. Cling film is great to use for texturing. I have been doing a lot of experiment lately with it.
