We are starting off the week observing trees. My son loves trees and wants to know all about them.
I love to photograph trees. Windy trees, snow covered trees, rainy trees, tall, short, whatever. Lighting hits trees so beautifully.
Just recently my son and I have been drawing trees utilizing watercolor and pencil. I prefer pencil, he prefers watercolor. We collect a few items from the tree; a twig, leaves, pinecone, etc. We bring it home and draw our best interpretations of what we see. Our dining table has become our artist table as there are constant remnants of tree debris and art supplies. I think from now on we will start creating our art outdoors.
