Trees are hard. I mean they’re hard to draw. At first they seem simple. But it is precisely this simplicity that is deceptive. For if you believe this seduction you will end up with a cartoon. Sort of what a stick figure is to a human portrait. It is tree’s randomness alongside their symmetry that makes them so beautiful… and so difficult to capture.
This is my first attempt at a scene from my friend’s story where Goya, the cat, is looking up at the great cathedral of trees above her.
