Looking up through trees – 7

This is one of my favourites of the series. I can really feel the height of this giant tree and the light filtering through! The under-painting was cad orange and while I found it a bit visually uncomfortable during the process for some reason, I think the end result is good. Curious.

Here is Tom’s mystical haiku written for this one.

bright starburst branches
tangled future, ancient past
rising to the sky

Looking up through trees -3

Number three in the series, this one has a magenta under painting. The particular tree is an enormous western red cedar with a twisted trunk I saw in Stanley Park. I like how it starts to melt into the sky.

Here is Tom’s haiku written for this one!

Braided branching trunk
Twisting high into the sky
Shadows down below
