Field Study - Lil Mushrooms

From spring 2013. It was unusually wet this year, so fungi were going crazy! A dead tree on my parents' property has this old gnarled injury that these little guys kept springing up in and I just had to paint them! Can't wait for it to not. Be. -8 degrees outside so I can do more field studies :D

watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil on hot press watercolor paper

    This is a wonderful piece that feels like a published excerpt from a book. I love the texture you captured on the bark not to mention the mushrooms!

      Thank you so much! This whole painting was meant to be an exercise in texture, so your praise means quite a lot. :)
