Tree Photography by Jill Saur

I took the original photo (the one in the  middle) on Friday.  I played with it in photoshop to add some dramatic color and to get some ideas for a painting (the one on top).  Afterwards,  I adjusted the different color tones into a monochromatic black and white (the one on the bottom).  I often just paint from ideas in my imagination, but there are other times that I first work with photography and photoshop to inspire new colors that I haven't worked with before.

By the way, this tree was in the parking lot of my bank on a busy highway!  I was lucky that there was an undeveloped field off to the side, giving the appearance of being out in the middle of nowhere.
