A week of trees

The theme this week for the 52 week Illustration Challenge was Trees. I love trees. I love being near trees, smelling trees, touching trees and trying to paint and draw them too. It was great to have a reason to focus on them this week.

I tried some realistic studies with watercolour, which turned out pretty well.
 Was aiming to capture the look and feel of a eucalyptus here.


I also went crazy and had some fun with my Family Tree and Tea Tree.



I hope you like them.
