Lines, Reds, and Yellow Palm Trees

Something unusual is to play with lines.

I made some stencils based on the outline of one palm tree. There are a total of three stencils, each more abstract and larger than the other. The stencils were made to force me to concentrate on using lines.

Using lines was challenging. How many different lines can I make using these stencils? What color, or colors, do I use? How do I empathize horizon lines using these stencils?

Using the stencils, I set up two pieces of American Masters paper, 8x8 inches in size, on my easel's drawing board. Making random traces of the stencil, both paintings were completed as you see here.

This composition is loosely based on the many palm tree farms near my home. ( Insert reference)

It was a lot of fun making these paintings. The stencils earned a place in my studio. I quite enjoy how these paintings finished.

How many different lines do you see in each paintings? Do you think I was successful in this palm trees line designs? Why or why not?
