Tree of Autumn (First of Four)

I thought I would just do something quick and easy to just have a little fun. So, I got out one of my sketchbooks and decided to do a little tree. Well, I love it so much! I decided that I would make a series of trees for the four seasons. This is mixed media (colored pencils and sharpie) on 9×12 tan-toned sketch paper. Next up? Winter, of course.



Love the abstract design of your tree. So very creative!

I really really like your tree for so many reasons. Mostly because it gives me a calm feeling. There are no corners, the shapes all seem to belong together yet feel free floating. Great choice of colors.

Why thank you, Maxine. I’m so glad that it gave you that feeling. It gives me that feeling just to work on it. I have trees for all the seasons. I will post them separately as a set.

Oh great Ginny. I’ll be watching for them! :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks, Teri. I really enjoyed doing this and all the others that I have done since. I just posted them. I have wanted, for many years, to be able to make a beautiful abstract. Well, I think I have hit it. I have made a lot of ugly art to get here. LOL!

Hi Ginny,

Boy, do I understand that! I have a folder full of ugly art that I keep looking at and see how far I am coming along. I will look for your post later.

So pretty! :star_struck: The colored pencils are nice in contrast to the solid marker! Very free and flowly, it shows that you had fun! :clap: :smile:
