Whimsical tree´s texture canvas with shadow pattern, edited in photoshop

This is the "Whimsical Tree Goddess" project.
I saw the video on Youtube and thought it is a good exercise for handling pencils. First time  I got the blending of  Acrylic colors to my liking. It was well explained how to do it. So I was happy :)
Then I made a sketch of the treegoddess. And got stuck! It is hard to transfer the sketch to the canvas as the canvas surface is kind of, slippery.
So, for the time being I photographed the canvas texture and took it to photoshop for some fun edit.
