Sunrise and Scott's pine

Great concept, Stevan, and beautifully painted.

Lovely painting and beautiful colours

I’ve always found the form of the Scots pine architectural and you’ve used it’s silhouetted shape here beautifully Stevan. The lighter dendritic form in the lower centre area looks like the root formation below ground. Looking forward to the series!

Great tree shapes against the light sky. Love the colours, especially the pinks and violets.

Thanks for the great comments. One of the benefits of posting pictures and getting feed back is we understand what works and what doesn't. We also extend our communications and in this case I've learned a new word "dendritic". I've had to look it up and I'm now looking for an opportunity to use it in my own vocabulary. Some thing else to thank you for Fionna.

Lol! It’s a good word isn’t it.

Fionna, it certainly is a good word. We could be considered to be developing a dendritic network! How does that work for my first public use of a new word?

Hang on Studio Wall

the scotts pine in the picture are based on photographs I took whilst on holiday on the east coast of Scotland. I took at least eight photographs and these made a lovely montage of close up and distant scenes. I like the photographs so much I plan to paint a series of them as a project. This is number one and I've tried to extend my style in to a different colour scheme.
