Bleached Roots


I like this, Alison. The tree is beautifully done...although it's pointless picking out bits, the whole thing works so well.

I really like how you've painted this

Thank you Lewis and Heather, I'm very grateful for your positive comments

Alison, thank you for your very kind comment on my last posting. I love your approach to this subject and the free style in which you have painted it. Great shape and pen work in the looks parched!

Thank you Fiona, I was very happy to receive your encouraging comments!

Hang on Studio Wall

This was from our wonderful road trip across West Coast America last year. It was at Bryce Canyon National Park, on a cliff edge overlooking a fairytale landscape of pinky orange pinnacles. The tree was in sharp contrast to the blue sky, the white rock and the orange background, and I wanted to convey the heat and harsh sunshine with the bleached twisted roots and defined shadows. Painted in pen and watercolour.
