I’ve been working on a new series of watercolor and ink trees. I took some pictures along the way to show a few of the steps while creating.
These trees remind me of the idea that “You can’t give away what you don’t already have.” These trees have a creative, colorful belly which allows them to give that same energy to their far-reaching branches.(click on any image to enlarge)
A finished tree in the upper right and two new trees in the works. I started with a light pencil sketch and then added the paint…
Ready for ink.
Beginning to sketch in the branches while the sun shines in on my favorite coffee shop and hangout.
A finished tree…or so I thought. After a couple of days I decided it needed a thicker black outline.
The tree is complete. A thin structure with deep, creative, colorful and limitless energy.
