I'm Learning: Watercolour Trees

I've been working on my watercolour techniques.

I've always liked the way that watercolours dry with so much texture. The texture seems to be a result of the amount of water used combined with the amount of pigment. Whatever the equation, I love it!

I'm generally a mixed media artist who usually works in collage and abstract, so painting or drawing ANYTHING is a huge challenge and triumph for me!

I did use an image to "copy" in order to create the first tree here:

This second tree was a little more adventurous for me...

I particularly like the ground around the tree.

For the third tree, I wanted to give it a lean, and I think I did a pretty good job!
