A tree grows at my sister’s

Last year I was roped into decorating the entryway of my sister’s apartment. She said it has been very well received and is a hit with all of her guests.

The tree was all freehanded/no stencils and completed over the course of an afternoon. I did some texture on the branches but I wasn’t going for trompe l’oeil realism with hardcore detailing and shadows. I was going for the feeling of a tree.  If you look closely you can see that almost none of the branches cross as they would in the real 3D world and the leaves hover in place without stems.

My sister has an excellent photographic eye and a sense of adventure. You should check her site out too.
