An exercise from another Zoom class. The assignment was to paint trees.
Sitting in my bed I look out the window opposite at my cherry tree, which has a bird feeder in it and a birdhouse that house wrens nest in.
I knew I couldn't paint what I saw realistically, so I just dove in.
Started with a wet wash and just kept adding. I found the hard edges were the worst part, so I dragged my brush through them.
I think I'm happier with the second attempt, below: same colors, but softer, less busy.
Have to say, this was fun, engrossing.
