Part 6 – Parallel Projects
Project: Winter Trees
I decided to try to do an Abstract in my own way of the winter tree outside my window, it has the feel of a fifties picture on the right hand side, but I adopted the leaves as I used them in my Summer Seasonal painting.
I used Caran D’Ache Neocolor II watersoluble wax pastels, but didn’t apply any water, as the cartridge paper would have buckled.
Whilst a thin covering of snow was on the ground I did this water colour sketch showing the skeleton shapes of trees near my house. I used Bockingford rough paper. I used white oil pastel on the trunks.
Again using Bockingford rough I painted this slightly freer group of willow trees with their gnarled trunks and flowing branches, and applied some wax pastel for the hint of white snow on the trunks.
