I've been looking at the landscapes of Egon Schiele and Indian Miniature paintings for inspiration. Not to copy you understand - just for atmosphere. The Indian paintings are particularly decorative in the treatment of trees.
I wanted to be able to see the spiky branches so there aren't many leaves!
I hoped some interest at the lower edge would anchor the trees to the ground. The grasses are a commercial stamp. I don't often use other people's stamps but this just seemed perfect - here's a closer detail.
I'll look at these again tomorrow before I decide what to do next.
Enjoy your weekend. It's a holiday here so another good reason to be painting all day!
Thanks for reading - Linda
