The Perfect Tree
This is a fun, experimental watercolor based on a photograph of a banyon tree in Hawaii. The sun was very bright and the contrast in the photo was so high that it almost looked like a black and white photo. But the shapes of the radiating tree limbs and resulting shadows were mesmerizing. My solution was to keep the shapes but play with the colors. The final missing piece was to add the boy doing what any kid would want to do on that tree - CLIMB IT!
