|Derwent Colored Pencil and Oil Stick - 8.5 X 11|
I really find trees fascinating. They have so much detail and character and there are no two exactly alike. I suppose in that way trees are like people. I bought another Derwent chocolate colored pencil because I'm almost done with the first one I bought. My son got me a gift certificate for a local art store. It was a really thoughtful Christmas gift.
In the solo tree below I wanted to work on texture and light. I wanted the tree to look full and vibrant. Again, I used the oil pastel to mute and highlight.
