Pink Willow Tree painting
This is a painting of a pink willow tree landscape I created a couple of days ago! I used my usual set of GRUMBACHER watercolors to paint this. I wanted it it be a bright and cheerful painting! I enjoyed mixing all of the vibrant colors!
The texture of the tree bark was achieved by using very little water with the paint and a stiff bristled brush.
For the leaves of the tree I held the paper vertically and used lots of water with the paint to make the paint dribble down.
The leaves are blowing to the left in the wind in a cool spring breeze. I felt like doing something spring related with all the cold autumn days we've been having!
