Country in the City

It takes a bit of editing, well, a whole lot of editing, but you can sketch bits of countryside in the middle of the city. This row of trees is actually between my workplace's shopping center and an apartment complex. I see it every day and sometimes sketch it. This sketch began as an ArtStudio app experiment on my iPhone. Can I do any meaningful art on a screen that small? Maybe little sketches work just fine. If it was good enough for famous artist David Hockney it's good enough for me. I then imported it into Photoshop and made it into a more elaborate treatment. If I work with ArtStudio on the iPhone more often I will take the stylus with me for more precise work.
