What's in My Sketchbook?

I drew up a lone tree in my sketchbook a few weeks ago and had been thinking of what to do with it.

Then an idea struck me after I put up my Christmas tree on 1st December.  I drew / painted some moss like string web with little white balls hanging from the lone tree.  Then I painted the background with darker color which reminded me of winter night.  And there you go ...

It is interesting how the things in our life inspire our creativity.  And I hope you enjoy this little imaginary Christmas Tree of mine! :)

The sketch is also for Paint Party Friday (which I'm late for my entry this week) - hosted by Eva and Kristin.  All are welcomed!  Do join in to share and support each other!

this is lovely. Something so wistful about it. It also makes me think of some strange land in a movie like the Lord of the Rings or The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe, I'm not sure why. I think even the way the paper has reacted to the watercolour helps to make the sky look even more full of snow!

I love that you just let your imagination create fairy-like strings flowing out from the tree.
