Painting Cottonwood Trees with Shanna Kunz Time-lapse

If you have spent much time looking at any of my work, you know I love those Cottonwood Trees! I love the abstract shapes of them, I love the sky holes, I love that they are rough and wooly. There is also a rhythm to them that feels like musical timing to me, like a bass note moving consistently across the format. I have played horizontal again vertical with the grassy field in a way that imitates the complimentary palette that hopefully leaves some tension and movement through a very peaceful scene. I thought I might put a cow or two in, but changed my mind as the trees are my focus point and a cow might take away from that.   I hope you enjoy this free time-lapse of the Cottonwood trees.  If you would like to see the full 2:51 length tutorial please click here
