My favourite tree, version 6

I’ve captured the colours of my favourite maple tree a little later than usual this year, as it veers from yellow to orange. I paint this tree every autumn because of its perfect domed shape, although sometimes I don’t manage to get the whole thing on the page. You can see some other sketches of it here or here or here or here.

    Always look forward to reading what you are up to…. pushes some of the negativity of some of the daily news out of the way…thanks for that.

    Thank you for the links to the past series of this tree — I love seeing them all! (I think you did that for me!) I have a couple of favorite trees I try to sketch in the fall every year. It’s so interesting to see how different the colors are from year to year, or the dates that they peak in color. I missed one of my favorite trees completely this year… it’s almost bald now. šŸ˜¦
