Fucshia by @W1TNESS (Ruben)

A venture into coloring, which is not my strong suit. The inspiration comes from bonsai trees but I wanted a different color for leaves than the traditional green. Cherry blossoms came to mind, however I went with more vibrant shades leaning towards fuchsia rather than the softer pink tones of cherry blossoms. It’s not perfect. I need to practice more with colored pencils and better understand how to utilize them properly.

I like this. It's exotic, almost alien, and the colors make it look excellent. It feels like this should be an actual tree somewhere.

Although some trees tend to have leaves in other colors (orange/red/yellow) depending on the season. For me, what made the "alien tree" effect was the twisted trunk. Good job!
