Hello! Grin and thank you for stopping by!
This is a watercolor I did for a swap, I didn't have time to scan the work but I took a photo of it once it was framed:


and I took an "in-progress" picture too. Here's the finished draft drawing in ink:

Comments would be greatly appreciated!
Edited to add measurments:
The paper is 9"x12" and the frame is 11''x 14''

Oooh, pretty, I like how the tree sort of comes out of the picture frame.

Edit: I really like your avatar. Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

 Grin Thank you!
I was thinking for my next work to use a shadowbox instead of a frame and make parts of the tree look 3D or layered.

I think it is wonderful.  I have no drawing or painting skills AT ALL.  I love that you added the in progress picture, I love seeing how things are done.  Actually, I thought the ink was quite stunning as well.
