Lonely ...

Waiting for the bus after my last massage, I noticed the trees that grow on a patch of land by the highway. The had red clusters of small leaves and the branches were bent in the direction of the wind. I snapped a picture and I used it as an inspiration for this page.

Over an unfinished sketch, I glued dyed napkin pieces, then applied gesso and watercolor medium, washes and some pencil lines. I like the straight lines showing through from the original sketch - they contribute to the ghostly atmosphere of the sketch.
