I couldn't find a better category to put this in, so I guess it goes here in miscellaneous projects. This tree is woodburnt. I colored it in with oil pencils, and then erased it so it would be more of a hue instead of bright colors (not that you can really tell, but I can). I wasn't going to add the color when I started, but I am really glad I did. I think it really adds something to the piece.
Notice it says 2009 at the bottom. My husband said it should say 2007-2009. Yes, I have been working on this off and on for quite some time. I would get it out and work on it up to the point where I was almost certifiably insane from the ridiculous amount detail, and then I would put it away for a few months to recuperate until I remembered it. Then I would pull it out again. This is very
detailed. All of the tiny individual leaflets took forever. In fact, I think the very middle of the roots is too
detailed. You have to get up really close to tell what it is. Despite that, I think it turned out great. This is my best woodburnt piece so far. I am very proud of it. It looks better in real life, and you can really see the texture of the bark. My husband said "Wow! It looks like real wood. Well it is wood, but you know what I mean, the trunk look very realistic." It may not look as good as it does in real life, But the picture is the best I could get. I hope you all like it.
