As I opened my eyes this morning and looked out the window the trees to the west were bathed in an intense golden light which turned non-descript gray barked trees into something magical. I tried to capture the essense of the moment. It's there but mostly in my memory. My painting skills aren't there... yet.

    1. Thanks Nancy. That was the most fun because when painting this wet the paint and water do much of the work for you IF you can be patient enough to wait for it to dry.

  4. I love your watercolour of the trees. I think this summer (or when it warms up) I will do some sketching in my garden. I am sure I will find lots to inspire out there. I am having so much fun finding art blogs and I am glad I found yours. I am following

    1. I'm glad you stopped by and like what you saw, Janice. By all means get out into the garden and draw, and don't wait for summer. Drawing the structure of bare trees will teach you so much about how they grow. They're like skeletons waiting to be brought back to life.
