    WIP- abstract tree painting

    Hopefully I did everything right! This thread was quite intimidating to me to be honest. It took about five minutes for my desire to make this better to overpower that instant turn-and-run feeling.


    This painting is done in acrylics and watercolor, and is on a smooth finish poster board. The base was done with my fingers and I've been adding the details with brushes.
    The painting itself is a sort of representation of a certain kind of insanity described in a poem I wrote.

    At this point however, Im not sure what to do next. Critique/suggestions would be incredibly awesome.

    Thank you!

    Well, the colours and shape and all make me think more of veins and arteries. Which might be a cool idea, like "tree made of veins" that would still keep the qualities of both.

    That was actually intentional and is mentioned in the written piece. I'm glad that made it across. I suppose I could use more sanguine colors, maybe some maroon or purple? I could definitely increase the value range that way and give it more depth. It's kinda flat at the moment.

    I'd say leave it as it is. It's on the verge of looking over-worked. Move on to the next one. With every new piece, commit yourself to improve. Slow down and put thought behind each stroke.
