This is just part of an amazing tree I found on one of my morning walks in St Kilda. It's 20x30 canvas, with a wash of lemon yellow and magenta mixed. I first drew it in water colour pencil, then went over the final drawing with my art pens. I've just washed in the green.

Fascinating tree-limb structure. I can see why you were attracted to it.

It's pretty close to being done, now. Just have to let it sit for a bit and see what I think. I'll probably call it Medusa Tree, because I keep seeing wriggling snakes. Wink

Good name. It looks really intriguing how the branches bend and curl around each other.

Your painting is looking great Sofie! I don't know how you don't get lost in the maze of branches. Smile

Did you pencil out the tree first, then do a wash in the tree color, then paint in the blue...if so must of taken some time to get the blue colored in....looking great, can't wait to see the next step....Dana

Sofie, I love the weighting of the green leaves.versus the branches, it is creating such interesting shapes, and then the pockets of blue sky. This is one of those paintings that a person can look at for a long time, and enjoy exploring... thanks for posting this!

An intriguing work. It does remind me of wall carvings in an Indian temple, very sensuous.
It certainly draws attention. Congratulations.
Jack thumbs up
