This watercolour started out to be a more or less realistic rendering of a tree trunk. Somewhere along the way  realism was forgotten and I had fun.

The Embrace

I took a photo of these two trees because it looked to me as if they were trying to embrace one another.

The Embrace


The background behind them was too busy to see the trees easily so in the watercolour painting I used the background from a different photo taken nearby.


This watercolour is from a photo I took beside the Calabogie Highlands Golf Course.  The tree still seemed to be healthy despite having lost part of its trunk.
