Every landscape artist works at least partially in abstract; just check out how they draw leaves.

Sketched the woods in south central Kentucky about twelve years ago, then picked it up this year for color experimentation and ended up with this. Warmed up to it after adding the hash marks on the tree and background, and after I established a bit of depth by slightly varying the greens in the leaves.

6 3/8 x 9 7/8 inches, watercolor pencils on printed copy of ballpoint pen original done on-site, 2019. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi color print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP ink which meets the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
