hazel tree


Summer Hazel ~ from the Celtic tree calendar, including symbols of the salmon and the planet Mercury

This one was more troublesome than the first, especially when my pen started to run out of ink!

Love the color combination! I really love your technique. I wish I knew more about it. At least I can come drool here! Have a good day.

Thanks for the great support, guys, and Vickie -- though I've often done it with my paintings, I haven't yet deconstructed my drawing process for my blog. I should do that!

Pen? What kind of pens are you using for this? (If you don't mind sharing that much of your technique. If you do mind, I understand.)

It's a beautiful end result.

Laura: I use a selection of media that work on black paper: metallic Sharpies, gelpens, white pencil crayons, etc. It was a Sharpie clone that pooped out on me.

Andrea, I love the language that you have developed for yourself. It really speaks to me in these tree drawings!

Andrea - this one and the one below are magical! I love that you're doing the Celtic lunar tree calendar. It really does suit your distinctive symbolic iconography. The colors in both pieces are very grounding. Gorgeous work!

As previous posters remark, the colors draw me in and soothe me. All the elements are pleasing. I enjoy the symmetry in this one and the way the elements cross the lines to avoid being too tidy.

At first look I thought this was a beautiful quilt, made of wonderful silky Japanese fabrics. In thinking about your dilemma between making what "they" want and will buy and making what you want, it seems like you've found a happy medium, a middle path. This is good and the work is beuatiful.
