Ponderosa Pine III

Ponderosa Pine III



I've done several watercolors of this particular Ponderosa Pine in Yosemite and wanted to abstract it. (2011 was the beginning of my interest in abstraction.) Remembering a teacher who said tree trunks are not really brown (there are lots of other colors in there), I decided to make this tree pink. Once I'd done the first stroke of pink, other things had to change. This was a lot of fun.
