Lecture description

These come in various shapes and sizes as all trees do. They are often seen in Mediterranean countries,often dividing areas and specially along beautiful driveways leading to villas. Hmm.

If you have them in your country, just check them out and use this template as a starting point for your own painting. Try them in a group.
