Loving These Little Trees

They are really speaking to me right now!

This one is in process, drying on my table as I make this post…

They come into being fairly easily, or not. Some don’t make it. More my fault than theirs. The ones who do come forth, tell me what they want to be named almost instantaneously. Love this connection :)

This morning was…

Painting Has Message

If you’ve seen my Facebook Page, June Rollins Art  or visited my DPW Gallery lately, you know of my recent fascination for creating Triad Trees. Below is today’s tree in process:

This loose way of tapping paint onto the paper is fraught with unpredictability. An aspect  I love because I can’t go on auto-pilot. I must stay connected to what the paint is doing and follow its lead. Corrections, if any, are a touch here or a lift there, so the art isn’t labored over.

Let The Title Come

This playful, spontaneous approach with no pre-planned sketch often provides insight as to what’s going on inside the artist. When dry, I step-back and ponder to see if a title emerges. Dreamscaping a way to awareness is fun and revealing :)

Simple Secret To Moody Watercolor Tree Effects

Don’t Interfere

Here’s a Triad Tree with a little more mood! Rather than leaving the background white, a wet-in-wet sky has been added simulating clouds. The sun is still shining through though :)

The effects seen in this watercolor are from very little brushwork. The sky is the only area the brush touched the paper. For tree foliage, pigment was tapped in. Tree trunk and branches were created with a palette knife.

The most important technique in this process is not interfering. To increase odds of pulling this off, step away from the painting, check e-mail, make a cup of coffee or change a load of laundry.

By not going back into the painting during this critical, incubation stage, the pigment and water naturally blend to form wonderful organic edges with varied intensity, hues and values.
