ACEO - Lone Tree 3-4

While sketching out at Burleigh Falls there were a number of old trees that had died over the winter and stood starkly against the sky.

Trees are good to study in the winter to learn the shape and form without the leaves hiding what lies beneath.

Sometimes I will do the underpainting of the tree skeleton and add leaves on top of the branches and change them from winter to spring, summer or fall colours.
