I’ve been thinking about how I can branch out (pun totally intended) in terms of my subject matter and one of my friends said “well I think you should paint some trees”At first I wrinkled my nose at this, but the more I thought about it the more the idea intrigued me. I decided to do some research and some how came to a list of endangered trees. Most of them were pretty crazy looking which I like so I picked a few to sketch. The painting I’m working on tonight is based on one called bois dentelle and (surprise, surprise) it has the most amazing looking flowers 🙂
It’s really fun to paint these things around the edges of the canvas and see peeks of the first dark green paint layer I did a couple weeks ago 🙂
And this is why I think I prefer painting in my living room….:-)
My goal is to finish these by 8pm. Or at the very least before the sun comes up lol. Stay tuned folks!
