The tree for this image was part of a "challenge" piece organized by the art group I'm involved in. We were all given the same photo to inspire us, and this is the outcome I came up with! The tree is the only thing similar to the original photo, but I've changed the colours and the everything around it. I started by painting the tree, and the serenity and peace it evoked for me inspired the rest. The complementary colour scheme of purple and yellow is one of my favourite colour palettes and I challenged myself to work within it's restrictions.
