I chose an acacia tree from google images.
10 things I learned/enjoyed
I had planned to layer in several colours, I didn't even finish the shape of the trunk because we had so little time. But, I liked this piece the best and would call it "finished" because it gives me an essence of a tree in a minimal abstract form that looks like a cloud and a question mark. Might change the colours though.
TO WORK ON
I loved this idea. I was thinking about negative space but from the perspective of everything around the tree rather than the tinier forms within the tree branches but because of concerns of time, I reduced it to these two blocks of colour. I'd like to play a bit more with the colours and some shape detail but I like how this gives the idea of the tree and the notion of absence.
