Title: Eagle Aerie 1
Medium: Ink and watercolor on ricepaper
Dimensions: 27"h x 17"w
"Eagle Aerie 1" is executed in a style reminiscent of traditional watercolor painting. It portrays a single, bare tree with thin, meandering branches stretching outwards. The tree itself is predominantly a pale brown color with hints of pink. The background is awash with various shades of blue, showcasing a cold sky, with darker blotches. The use of watercolor creates a blend of colors and a softness in transitions, which conveys a certain depth to the scene. The overall effect is tranquil and somewhat somber, with a focus on the stark beauty of the natural subject in a dormant state, implying a quiet resilience.
