Tree Silhouette on Watercolour Background

16 Feb 2017

Wow, it's taken a while to get this tree silhouette painting/drawing finished. Mainly because of all of the intricate drawing that has gone into the tree. It still needs a little work here and there but I wanted to share it with you. Sometimes, looking at the work in a photo, focuses me to where it needs more work.

I wanted to experiment with the watercolour background on a big piece of paper. These are washes of pure watercolour paint, running into each other. I then dripped some water onto parts and flicked more paint on.

I love the silhouette of bare tree branches against wintery skies. It wasn't until I was looking at the photos at home, that I noticed this tree still had a lot of leaves on it. It was December!
