Tree Square

7:41 AM


This is a tree I drew this weekend on a piece of really thin wood (pictured above on my sweet Ikea-clearance-patio-table-turned-desk). I thought the medium would be a unique canvas, but it ended up being a little tricky for me...I wasn't very invested in this piece at first, when I started, just sort of sketching and goofing around - but then I just fell in love with this tree! It's silly, but I rarely like a tree drawing as much as this one. I keep staring at it. So then suddenly I really cared what happened to this little piece of art, and how I would finish it. The problem is - I don't know what I'm doing. I still don't know much about watercolor and how it reacts to a wooden canvas...so I did my best to add some color to the drawing. In the end, I think it's a little boring (and the tree deserves better), but the tree makes me happy enough to consider it a success.
