Tree Study 2013

In the fall of 2013, I joined SWESA, the Southwest Edmonton Seniors Association. They have a Friday morning art group where anyone wishing to do art in the company of others could join in.

My first project was to experiment with watercolours - to see what I could create with them - what effects colours would make on the same design. Using an image from Pinterest (unable to source as I can no longer find it), I copied the tree design and used different colours. You can see how the colours create mood. The backgrounds can be muted or become the highlight of the  paintings. This exercise helped me fall in love with watercolour painting and its possibilities for expression. Colour alone can define an artist.
