    1. Or maybe pretending to be the trees they are hiding within? Some trees are so beautiful. I imagine these figures fitting in well with them.
      Thank you

  3. What I love most about this sketch is the way the figures blend in with the trees...are almost part of their woody forms.
    It is hard to tell where bark ends and flesh begins.
    Perhaps the figures are Tree Spirits? :)

    1. I was hoping they would be seen this way, blending in, either hiding, or as you note as spirits of the trees.
      Thank you
