Reading Under a Tree
Sunday, May 23rd, 2010
This is a little doodle I did thinking about one of my Works in Progress that’s kinda undecided about where I’m going with it. Right now it’s just a blue sky and some dark brown earth and nothing else, but I actually sort of like the effect all by itself. Still, I like this image with its loose lines and the arching tree over the studious figure.
I’ve always liked drawing trees, especially the leafless winter skeletons with all their intricate fractal shapes. It’s like jagged lace to see the bits of sky between the branches, the shadows reflecting inexact details warped by the ground’s topography.

Every time I think I know what I want my next painting to be, I see something else that makes me reconsider. Indecision is hard, man.
Heh, you’ll survive somehow. Or I’ll just paint something you want and you’ll buy that instead. 😉
Love your tree’s!!! Makes me excited about my painting. You’re truly awesome Amy
Aww, thank you! I do enjoy my trees a lot… 😉
