Dancing sugar plums they are not

Monday, March 1, 2010

These darn tree ovulations have been dancing around in my head for the past few weeks. I am not a colorist, so they have been pretty trying for me. To the point where I think I need a few days off from painting to get my head back - it's not just these. There are more than twice as many that have been chasing after me!
At any rate, they are almost done now. I definitely have to scan them when they *are* done because the delicacy of the greens won't show up in these pics.
At any rate, the composition shown here is from a Japanese painting that I have admired for a long time and I wanted to see if I could get anywhere close to it. I'll find a pic of the original to put up when I have officially finished my own version so you can see how far off I am. (I am humbled by how far off I am!)
