Only after finishing this painting did I realise that theres nowhere near enough branches on that tree. Its really just a giant stick masquerading as a tree.
Was reading a wonderful haiku about daffodils by fiercebuddhist and wondered if I could do I haiku type drawing. Using as few brushstrokes to suggest the flowers coming to life. I decided that my attempt looked more like a coloured scribble than the dawn of spring and so I illustrated the flowers on top. Cheating! I clearly need to practice my zen-watercolour.
