MORE DRAWING AND PAINTING TREES

   Thank you to all who have commented in the last few weeks. I really do appreciate you encouragement. The class with Deborah Paris is still keeping me busy and I'll be getting back to paying more attention here after this coming week.

Here are a couple of monochromatic  underpaintings that I did in the last week.

I've been concentrating on the local trees.  I was able to get outside this last week as the sun shined for a few days and temps were in the 50's F.    The deciduous trees are just starting to show some leaves, there was a dandelion in the yard and the slugs are back, so our spring is here, though now it is raining hard again.

Hi Carole, beautiful tree studies! They look very feathery and detailed, must be a wonderful workshop! Enjoy!

Hi Polly, I've been fine. I just got too busy for a while and the new normal didn't include blogging. Thanks for wondering.
