ASPEN ONE AND TWO
Watercolor, pigment marker on Rives BFK
22" x 30"
I titled this post Aspens And Their Environs because these two recent works represent
the tree and, also, everything that is going on around it. When I am drawing in the forest the
activity surrounding the tree itself captures my attention and is as important to me as
the apparent subject. On site paintings would include all that my eye sees, but in the studio
things like wind moving branches in the distance and fallen limbs leaning into neighboring
trees are represented by the energetic drawing of concentric lines and the shapes that are
randomly created by them.
