Tree tops


A small textural painting in watercolor and guache.I had started as abstract patterns with splashes and unplanned mingling of color; but no wonder some trees took shape! I can never be an abstract painter- I find form everywhere :)

  2. I agree that this is very unique for you, Arti! And while it does have the abstract impact, I find it more beautiful when I find form in an art piece. This is like a brilliant autumn forest and so darned pretty!!

    1. I was trying something similar in acrylics but missed the spontaneity of watercolor--the mingling of pigment on paper creating beautiful patterns.So I finally went with watercolor and it worked!
