I decided to draw a tree with a pinkish sunset in the background. I used the ArtRage oils app.then I decided to see what it would look like if I duplicated and mirrored it. Now I can see a 🙀 cat! And various other patterns…. I’m one of those people who see faces in anything. I think I heard people saying that you can be employed to look for faces in patterns so they can alter designs and remove them. I could do that job! Art and Design seems full of them…. X
At the Brampton museum and art gallery today. This beautiful sculpture was carved out of a tree trunk there. I love the bee which is well detailed. I wish I could have our old Ash tree, that was partly cut down last year, carved into a bee tree too!
A cracked trunk up on Werrington Bank. I think the spikey stuff is Christmas lighting. I just liked the look of it, like a miniature forest growing on the tree. I think it gets very wet up there, hence the moss growth. The bark looks damaged and cracked, so the moss has taken advantage of the broken surface.
Photo taken last Thursday in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. Spreading sideways, this tree seems to have had a haircut leaving all the horizontal branches but nothing hanging down. Also it’s still got a lot of leaves where the trees next to it are just about bare. It’s random because it’s just a street tree, the fence and road and car don’t really enhance the picture. It is all about horizontals I guess.
Well I did it! The painting is long and thin, so I might add something to the lower third of the painting….
I’m doing winter paintings now. First one started, winter tree. I’m trying to get the twigs and snow correct. Just working from a random free photo off the Internet as we don’t have anything as picturesque as this in the area, plus of course its raining not snowing! More later…
