Triangles And Winter Woods

We’re still waiting for the first snow around here. I’m longing for walks in the quiet, white winter woods.

Meanwhile I’m experimenting with triangles, trying to find the best way to arrange them into a geometric version of a spruce. The first one looks like it’s flying, don’t you think?

I like it better this way, I think.

This is the idea I have in mind for my whole winter woods thing.

Trying to decide what to darken and what to keep white. There’s supposed to be snow on the branches!

I’m using my watercolor pencils for this one. I like it that they enable me to combine the transparency of watercolors and the texture of pencil drawings.

That’s the progress so far. Now I’m working on some little fellows similar to these ones.
