David Hockney’s Trees

biggertrees

I like to watch documentaries while I draw sometimes. I’m kinda nerdy like that. Often its just background noise, but I saw one recently called David Hockney: A Bigger Picture that really caught my attention. I like a lot of Hockney’s artwork and have written about him before, but the work shown in this documentary has to be some of my favorite. Trees, trees and more trees!

I go for a lot of walks up in the canyons. Its one of my favorite things to do. I spend a lot of my time looking around at the trees, and I love the way they smile down at me. Every season is nice but winter is probably my favorite season for visiting with trees, because then I can see just how beautiful all of those branches are as they scrape the sky.

I guess that is why I love these more recent paintings by David Hockney so much. He captures the trees perfectly. And I absolutely love how he made these enormous pictures on a number of large canvases that he put together to make up the overall piece. I’ve stood in front of a lot of Hockney’s work over the years, but I have never seen one of his beautiful trees in person. I mean to change that as soon as I can!
