My Beloved Tree II, 15 x10, graphite on paper.

This is another tree I like, although I like it better in the summer, but it is good to see and appreciate the bare skeleton of it during these early spring days.




It was done with graphite 2B and 3B on cartridge paper


Today was a bit cold than yesterday and I was less relaxed while sketching this time but I endured as long as I could from 10- 11.30am.

No kidding, nice tree....and Josh at the beach was super. I sure hope and invite you to do a sketch for one of April's children on Windows to the Words...the site needs your flair...although last month's were great. Getting packed to return to the U.S. and it has hurt my blogvisiting time.

You have the skills of a master. Did you lift the light grass with an eraser?
