Artist's description:

Bring a leaf from a tree very close to your eyes and you will see a net made of the veins of different thickness. If you look at the same leaf from the distance of an outstretched arm, you will see the shape of the leaf and only the thick veins. If you look at it from a further distance, you will see no veins at all, but you will see its shape and color, and it will be clear to you what you see – the same leaf.

The same happens when we look at the trees. When we move away from the tree, the discrete leaves become undiscernible and merge into the green mass of the crown. But the tree doesn’t cease to be a tree for us.

To draw a tree it is completely unnecessary to paint each leaf. It is unnecessary to draw the sky or sun to depict light from the sky or sun; it is enough to find and depict the most important thing, which tells the viewers that here is a tree, the sky and sun.


Please note that I'll be able to dispatch the work for shipping in two weeks. I need adequate time to get the official documents to pass customs control, and it's hard to influence this timing. If you need it really fast, please contact me via message on Artfinder and I'll see if I can speed it up.

*Frame is not included. I can add a frame personally chosen by me to it, but it will increase the price and some people like to choose frames on their own. If you are interested in that, write me a personal message and we'll discuss it.

If your country isn't in the shipping list, you can contact me via private messages.

P.s. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions
