I always know that I'm in for a treat when I click on your thread. I'm not disappointed. I can feel the trees swaying in the breeze.

Beautiful trees, Tom. I like the rhythm/pattern of their branches. Which number of this paper do you use and how do you like it? Does it take an underpainting? Thanks.

This one seems different for you. A lot less darks than normal. A very airy feeling.

Airy and beautiful! A stately dance, in order to not disturb the growin grass. :-)

Tom, very nice. As usual, your trees speak as trees, nice gesture and touch.

Thank you for answering, Tom! I love your work!
Hm, Terry Ludwigs, Mt. Vision and Nupastel! I only have Nupastel, and that about 10 sticks not more, now I can blame the equipment for not being able to paint like you do :)
I love everything about your painting(s)!
