This tree was a lot of fun because I learnt so much. It was the first time I took my water colors out of the house.....4 feet from the front door so I could look down the drive at this tree. After painting the huge leaves I suddenly realised the perpective was all wrong. The leaves couldn't possibly be that big but I wanted the effect that I saw on the tree. I couldn't get the clors right due to my only being a beginner. I discovered so many things that I will need to learn in the future. It was very satisfying to paint. It was supposed to be for Challenge 100 as a landscape for Everyday matters. I am quite overwhelmed at the moment to know what directions to go in...there is so much to learn.
I went to my brother's today to use his scanner and decided I really need to get one myself so I'll see what I can do next week.
