A tree that looks at God all day, and lifts her leafy arms to pray…Alfred Joyce Kilmer

I am starting an online workshop on trees with Marla Baggetta, and the first assignment was to go sketch trees. So yesterday, I invited my friend Dianne to go sketch trees.

About Diane

My art is about seeing something of inspiration in nature or in everyday life and then expanding on what I see, trying to say something about it that hopefully will speak to the viewer I will attempt to capture the interplay of light and shadow by simplifying and often modifying the shapes. To be more impactful. In order to encapsulate the mood of the moment, I like to vary the texture and size of the strokes and use bolder colors than you might actually find in my starting reference.
