Bucharest, Romania



















Tree in the green area.

There's a series of trees in the green area. It started raining shortly after I started, so had to cut this short. I'll have to wait till the sun comes out to get to the really big one that almost covers the green space. I was trying to look at the tree as a warmup for a portrait.

There was a small reprieve in the rain, so worked on this small one. These trees have these very round leaves. Now that it's getting to be summer, they're very solid forms.


























View from the apartment at night.

The light from the street lamp illuminates the solidity of the tree from the inside out.

pencil is very different for you - but still very interesting :) I like the way you played with tonal shapes ;)

anyway, the trees came out alittle funny. maybe I wasnt sure what I was seeing exactly..... maybe the leaves, maybe the overall form, maybe the color, maybe the light and shadow...... anyway, your monster fruit and portraits came out much stronger.

thanks, John! I like your trees - a little decorative and less realistic compared to your other trees but interesting none the less!
