Art Every Day Month - Day 14....The Red Maple Tree

We have a red maple tree on our front lawn...I was putzing around this morning in the house, and my husband came in from outside to get me. He wanted to show me how pretty the red maple in front of the house looked this thing I know, he has a chair and a crate set up for me and I am outside sketching the tree. I used my pan pastels and my pastel pencils for this one.

My husband is my biggest fan and is constantly looking for things for me to sketch and paint. Our tree out front is beautiful and this time of year, it's a bright red. It has a nice shape, so it was fun to put on paper.

Two more pages done in my Art House CoOp sketch book!


  1. Vibrant colors, great line detail... I want to be there. Thanks for sharing.

  2. So pretty, There is nothing like having your husband be your biggest fan.

  3. Thanks all, yeah hubby is a great guy and the maple is nice shape, I thought about creating little faerie sculptures and setting them up in the tree.

  4. Hi Gina,
    I love that your husband is your biggest fan. I have a wonderful husband too so it's always nice to read that others are happy. I love that you're doing The Sketchbook Project too! I had received the sketchbook and they wondered when I was going to get it done. AEDM seemed really logical. I really appreciate the structure. Beautiful tree!
