Mangrove Tangle 1 & 2

Pastel on paper 9 x 12

Pastel on paper 8 x 8

These are 2 studies I did of the Mangrove roots. I took photos kayaking one day, going in and out of the little passageways was so much fun, it feels so otherworldly and jungle like. They are interesting plants, I will continue to work some more on these. I think I was happier with less root showing, but got a little carried away. Simpler might be better in this case.
