This began as a simple sketch in my sketchbook (which is almost full now).
The title came as soon as I finished the sketch:
In Love with an Elegant Line
Then I decided to paint it using the gold gessoed watercolor paper.
The next step is to put some color on the gold tree to soften areas and give it more interest. If watercolor doesn't do it, I may pull out the watercolor pencils.
Still cold cold cold here and about 6 inches of snow still on the ground and piled around where snowplows have cleaned off middle of streets and people have shoveled out their driveways. More ice and snow coming Sunday morning - what fun.
