I'm starting to include figures in my paintings. This is another experiment. I am combining an anthropomorphic tree that I've always like drawing with a female nude. Using other imagery that I tend to like, such as a cityscape and swirls.
Here is the under-drawing in pencil on watercolor paper. The tree's face looks a little too surprised but I'll correct that.
This is the quickie sketch to plan out the idea before I jumped in.
