I finished the second tall, narrow tree for Loose Thread’s forest. I found a great hand-dyed piece for a winter sky. I had originally planned for the ground beneath the surface to go from brown to purple then red and finally orange but when I pinned it up it didn’t look right so I reversed it and liked it better with the purple on the bottom to balance the purple/gray of the sky.
I drew a sort of a tree and the root system in Photoshop. I liked the lime green roots but decided that the brown tree was not enough contrast and the tree was just too big.
Final version: The tree is black and simple.
And I decided that the roots are still working their way down. If you click on the image the whole length should appear on your screen.
