Early stages. I still had no idea how it would turn out. I nearly threw this early stage out to the rubbish heap, as I could not visalise the next step. I start with a blank canvas and let my imagine take it's journey
Mario, lookin’ good mon. One question, what’s the name of the actual tree branches you’re using for tree trunks? I think we have a similar type growing around here. It’s called Carolina Willow or Coastal Plain Willow, more of an invasive species than a native. it grows along marshes, rivers and lakes. It has great bark variation and its light weight.
