For this series, I gathered photographs and drawings of trees in silhouette. For each piece, I made the basic composition on a computer, drafted the rectangles on the board, then projected the tree image and "drew" it directly with acrylic paint. From my composition sketch, I knew the values (relative light and dark) of each area, but the hues and intensities were worked out in an aesthetic "chess game," with me working until I achieved interest, subtle gradations, and overall balance.
