everyone should have a familiar tree by agnes-cecile everyone should have a familiar tree by agnes-cecile

everyone should have a familiar tree that could recognize among a thousand
- trees remain motionless, predictable, safe

just a sketch from my moleskine, some people have a familiar tree, I realized I didn't have it

(I'm coming back to work on more consistent projects! soon new paintings :) )

I really like the colors you used to paint the bark. You wouldn't see these colors in real life, so it brings out the "fantasy" from it all. The way the water color is painted, makes the trunk look stunning. (Yes, I'm saying this about a tree). The little details here and there, add a nice touch as well. Like, the leaves in the bottom right corner, stubble, but helps the picture. I love your paintings and hope to see more of your artwork again soon. Keep up this great talent of yours and sharing your art with us on DA! (:

They say that trees don't have a conscious, but they definitely feel, maybe not as intensely or as often, but they do feel. This piece is portraying the emotions of the tree, your familiarity with the tree is what allows you to notice it, and translate its feelings into a beautiful painting. Wonderful.

Lol I have one of those! It's in my neighbours yard and we used to climb it all the time... right up untill they bought the property and built a friggin' castle for a house there lol...

But it had thick branches going all the way up to the very top and they were perfect stairs -- in a spiral all the way up... The neighbour cleared away all the other trees around it, but left just that one for some reason... Which I'm glad about, because I literally probably would have cried f it was cut down lol... IDK, me and my sisters spent so many summers up in it's branches reading, drawing, pretending we were fairies, making forts, etc... lol

Oh, good ol' childhood, how I miss you :iconallmyloveplz:

Really, just lovely! I love how you've added the hints of blue in here too : )

I love the depth that occurs once you see the different shapes, I'm a big fan of small illusions in art, and this stands out :-)
