Fall Trees

The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more.-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well, I've been wondering a lot about trees lately-- specifically how to draw and paint them.  Saturday's focus really helped me understand how others did this, even if I haven't got it all down myself. Thanks to everyone for your contributions and especially to Deb for agreeing to lend assistance. I appreciate having all the  examples and even tracing paper to use.

Here are my sketches from the morning.

(I made this extra large so that you can see Kalina sketching:)

If you care to see a summary of what I gleaned from Saturday, it's on my blog

Again, the turn out was great. It's so fun to sketch and talk with everyone and share all our wonderful, diverse results.


  1. I think I may have to change my watercolor palette a little to include these wonderful bold colors you have here. The single tree is so striking and exactly what I was wanting to do myself.....!
    Wonderful stuff.
