A Scottish Tree


I do like to draw trees and I couldn't resist this one.  It's real and lives up in Scotland, Anne from Frayed at the Edge took the original photograph and kindly let me use it as a reference.  This tree looks like a person and even has little birds nesting in the holes. so it must be a kind tree!  I am hoping to do something else with it, possibly bigger and in ink, this is in pen and coloured pencil.

I love this tree! Personality plus! Like something from a story book. I also love how well you portrayed all the twists and turns and used the splashes of color!

I could see why this is such an interesting subject, it's got something that draws people's attention to it.
It's so beautifully rendered, and I love the background as well! Your blog is constantly setting new heights ^^

Great. Liked the spooky form of it. Reminds me of an old tree close to my room when I was a little girl. It always haunted me with the shadows at night. This one, green, sketched, so normal, was a relief! :)
