Trees

A few trees I’ve sketched and painted recently.

I think these are aspen. I love the white trunks and painted in little patches of texture and color all around to highlight them.

And this unnamed tree is on the sidewalk in front of my house. Here I started with a green base for the whole image and then carved out the scene in watercolor, ink and gouache, letting the overall summer-green feel of the scene come through.

    I love trees and yours are always very colorful and lively! The form of the white bark tree suggests to me it’s a birch tree😉.

    I really like the mid-morning summer trees. The feeling of heat and humidity are there.
