Think I have a tree obsession. Not sure how bad it is yet, but I've noticed, in the past 2 days I've done at least 5 drawings of them. This obsession came to light as I've been going through old drawings and photos of mine trying to find ideas to turn into etchings. Putting together several images, I realised two thirds of them where trees, or wood related.
Very quick colour sketch, one day to turn into a proper painting, but I loved the way the winter light hit the bare poplars, with some of them in rich lilac shade.
I love seeing how fallen trees carry on growing, their branches turning into trees themselves, carrying on despite the odds.
So, not sure where these drawings will take me, but I have an idea it could be quite an absorbing project ahead of me...
