Trees

Hello...

Happy December!

I've been trying to draw trees - So far, adding branches so they look natural is not as easy as it look, well not to me. 
 I seem to be obsessed with trees and I guess that's true ... I've always loved trees and swore I'd never live in a place that didn't have trees around. But enough of that ... 
Here's what I have to share today


I sketched some birch tree trunks (No branches Lol) and watercoloured them
I thought it would be fun to add that little deer as though he were peeking through the tree trunks, simply done by cutting it and placing pieces either side of the tree - I didn't glue the head down though because I wanted a raised look


Unfortunately, what you can't see is how sparkly this is when the light catches it as I've added tiny bits of glitter to the painted BG as well as the glittery leaves. The weather has just not been cooperative for photographs.


This will be going in a frame as I know a little girl who will love this.. She loves anything that sparkles, well who doesn't?

 I've been thrilled at the response to my efforts and would like to thank...

These trees are awesome, Ros! I love your forest background, too, and the falling snow, and, of course, the darling fawn. You'll get those branches eventually. Your watercoloring is outstanding. Congratulations on those awards, which come as no surprise to me. That little girl will love this for sure!

Sweet! Love the deer in black!

Your drawing of trees are awesome Ros, you are so talented!
It is so weird that I am so font of trees too, I always wanted to be a tree in my next life and look up things like burial pods and bio urns, or natural burial that I could grow into a tree and return to the land when I die (not in a coffin though). I love trees!

Such a pretty card Ros! Love the beautiful forest scene and the sweet deer! Hope you are enjoying the magic of the holiday season!

You are absolutely an artist, Ros! Lucky little girl who gets to hang this beauty on her wall!

Beautiful Ros! Your forest is just lovely and the little deer peeking out from behind the tree is so adorable! Wonderful piece of art! hugs :)

Maria said...

So pretty and serene! You did a great job sketching the trees! And, the silhouette deer is so cute! It will bring a big smile to the little girl receiving this gem!

Stella said...

I love your birch trees and you are right that little deer is perfect peeking from behind the trees and against the green background.

Marina said...

You deserve those accolades!
These trees are fabulously drawn and look great with the deer.

Sylvia said...

Your drawing is looking good, Ros and the way you painted this is fabulous!

Tracy said...

Delightful. Your painting on the tree trunks looks so realistic. Great job on the shading. The sweet little deer has a lovely place to live. Hugs!

Darnell said...

Oh, I'm so pleased to hear that your beautiful work of art is going to be framed and gifted to an intelligent little girl who also loves trees! I do, too, so this piece really moved me, Ros. Every piece of hanging art in my home is either trees or leaves. I spose it's like being a dog person or a cat person, some of us are just tree persons! Anyway, well done "sculpting" your deer, too!! Hugs, Darnell

This is just the cutest, cutest scene!! The little fawn is so cute in among the trees...another stunner my friend! Hope all is well with you, sorry I have been so late in 'getting here' but it has been crazy here with all going on in the family!
