What about trees…

…Oh I love trees, anyone that knows me knows that I absolutely love trees.

And I played a bit with the watercolours and trees, just watching the water flow in any direction.

I didn’t want a lot of detail or individual leaves, just a suggestion of branches and leaves was what I was aiming at.  So I didn’t paint every leaf, and didn’t stay close to my reference picture.  I never do stay close to my reference picture.  Wetting the paper first, then carefully dropping colour here and there.

The dancing palm trees were my favourite

Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don’t see what goes on underground – as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don’t see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.   Joyce Meyer
