The first watercolor effort was featured in Spectacle of trees 

In this post I have shown several differing types and styles of trees…. done, my way!, watercolor landscape, #world watercolor month, watercolors, tree paintings

#2  Woodlands watercolor,



Today’s post shows the original watercolor, cropped of superfluous ‘rubbish.’
