26.1 Tree Ferns

I took this photo back in 2014, almost exactly to the date.  Tree ferns are amazing plants -they have spores and fronds, and get huge.  I wonder what it would be like to wander through a forest of these!

Anyway, I decided to scroll through my years of photos and found this one.  I liked the pattern repeats and the shapes.  A nice graphic quality.  So, this is what I began in my sketchbook.

I may add more fronds.  I may not.  The big question is what I should use to color it.  Something that contains itself seems appropriate, like markers, given how sloppy my painting skills are.
