Old Hobbyist - The fine ramification of your trees really stand out in this painting. I also like the structure at the base of the tree trunk
Chammi: I love the early morning feel your picture has. The way you painted your leafs make me think they move in the breeze
Linda - The sky looks awesome! As for the bark of your tree - I feel tempted to touch the screen despite knowing I´m only going to touch plastic
Robert - What a great idea to put leopards into the painting. I loooove pictures that tell a story and I like to think there´s something going on between the two of them
Ranunkel: I wish I could paint a meadow like that. Your tree looks like it´s huge and ancient to me.
Allan - of all the pictures this is the tree I´d choose to sit under and even maybe spend a holiday there. Wonderful colours.
Maureen - Wow, bold colors! And another meadows that makes me go green with jealousy
Trier - Way to go! I love experiments!
The first one looks like an illustration out of a picture book to me. The violet in the second one adds a lot of depth to the picture, I think. The third one makes me think I´d like to visit that interesting place. When I saw the fourth one, the movie Avatar came to my mind (it features glowing plants, for those who haven´t seen it). The fifth one made me think of an ancient temple. Interesting concept. Even more so: the last one. Thank you for being able to see a picture of the place since I could never visit it.
Rosanne - That picture made my jaw drop. I tried to find a more eloqent description but nothing else quite fit. I am positively in awe.
JFountain - That shadow really adds interest to the picture.
Margaretta - now there´s a story in a picture. Thank you. Doing it from your imagination might have been a good thing because it made you concentrate on the essence of the story and fitting your tree to it, not the other way ´round.
So here´s my version. Alas, the tree takes a back seat.
Slightly too big for my scanner so I had to photograph it. Didn´t work too well without daylight. Roughly 34x34 cm on watercolour paper.
And yes, no color
. Just black Schmincke acrylics, acrylic medium and water. Also, no other references used but the acacia tree, so any anatomical similarities with existing animals/humans are purely incidental.
