An original watercolour of a tree blowing in the wind by a river.
This painting is all about movement. I wanted to create the strong tree being battered by a swirling wind. The blossom and debris is being twisted in the air. The river that would be flat and calm is covered in the wildflower petals bobing on the surface.
I started with a grey and moody sky, but left it bright behind the tree to make it stand out. I used a damp brush once the painting was completed to create the swirls in the wind. I finally then "splattered" the painting with the different colours for the petals. This makes it more random if a little bit more messy in the studio (more fun).
I hope you like it any questions please ask, always happy to help.
