Sometimes I enjoy just sitting down with some paint and a canvas, no model, and just doodling what is in my head. One of my favorite things to doodle is trees.
I find the freedom to just create, letting my hand and brush do what they want, to be very relaxing. Plus, what is more refreshing than creating a teeny tiny forest right in your art studio?
So, while working on pointillist paintings and other projects, I've been free-hand painting trees. The trees above are all ACEOs. I like how they look so much, that I'm working on some larger ones, like the 8x10 painting below. I'm almost to the point where leaves and flowers are going to sprout on the canvas!
