If you haven’t read my previous posts, I’m currently in an all-consuming process of drawing birch trees.
I just haven’t realized how wonderful they actually look, and how they stand out in any forest scenery.
So I’ve been drawing them up with an added wash of watercolor, which I’ve found very enjoyable.
The first piece ended up like this:
Then came the second:
In both cases I liked some of the features, but were equivalently displeased with others.
You can read more about that in my previous posts, if you’re feeling curious.
Now, however, it was time for my third attempt, which gave me a pleasing result:
Don’t get me wrong, there are still much to work on.
The paint ended up too smudgy in some places.
And the color blends didn’t mix as harmoniously as I wanted.
But at least I am satisfied with how the drawing ended up, and how strong the colors look.
I also like that combination of blue and yellow, which came together through a very spontaneous choice.
So, all in all, I don’t feel done with this birch tree collection at all.
If anything, this piece gave some steady streams of water for my mill.
I hope you’ll tag along.
And I hope that you’re doing alright, and that you’re having a good day!
