I am waiting for my art supplies to arrive in the mail for my tree class that I told you about yesterday so I decided to explore the shape of trees with some quick sketches.
I purchased this used book from Amazon recently:
It’s silhouettes of tree images helped me greatly! Here are a few more tree shapes that I colored with color pencils:
One of our assignments for the class was to draw a continuous line of trees – I have to say this is very addicting!
And another one:
There are so many tree varieties in shape, form and color! So fun to explore…
Happy Drawing! 🙂

Bob’s dreams were starting to keep him awake at night:
I seem to be having strange dreams lately…
This was my inspiration for this post. LOL!
The weird creatures are blobs of watercolor paint. I learned how to create these imaginary animals from Carla Sonheim. She has an excellent book called, “Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals,” that I just love!
I added details and shading with a pencil and color pencils. Bob is an old photo – a mystery man. His pillow is a gelli-print and his bedspread is a doodle I did and copied.
My dad used to tell me, “Sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite!”
Sweet Dreams! 🙂
