In honor of Spring, finally, showing up in NH. Here is a tangle with growing things.
I didn't like this pattern when I first tried it. I kept seeing the shapes as "ping pong paddles" and had trouble drawing them. When I shifted my perception to see them as "berries"... wow! that's cool! If you like drawing them as "paddles" you can actually get some interesting pine cone effects or even fish scales. If you are really having trouble with it, try perfecting "poke leaf" first. And be sure to try it with an aura around the final layer!
