Creating the Family Tree: Sketch #5
Okay, so they didn't like the trees.
I played with the branches and leaves again, and moved the rolling hill on the left over to give more space to the tree, compared with Sketch #4. I also took out one of the roots, but it wasn't symbolic, I was just sketching and trying to balance the image.
During this time of sketching, I was looking intensely at a lot of trees and artwork that focused on trees.
That's the gift of being an artist, though. You get to look at your world closely, and realize it's more than you'll ever comprehend, and then try to communicate it.
