Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island is a stunningly beautiful park in the middle of the island. The grounds are superbly maintained, and I encourage people to go visit when they are in Bainbridge. This willow by the pond really caught my eye, and it was quite impossible to ignore, really.
Dealing with all the greens were quite a challenge for me with this painting. Also, you might have noticed my recent efforts at trying to get better drawing accuracy. Getting tree forms to look like a certain kind of tree rather than just a mass of green was also quite the challenge.
I have more about the Bainbridge Island paint out at the PAWA blog.
