And a fine tree it is Ester. Makes me want to go and do some now. I'm curious as to what you used here, to sketch this.

Ester said...

no, didn't climb it, but there are a few trees in our local park that a lot of people climb. Makes me kind of nervous to think about doing though.

This is just a pencil sketch done in a fabriano (cream/white) artist journal. I used a mechanical pencil .05 3b lead. The paper in this new book is super bright white, really great for pencil. Glad you like it, I had tons of fun. Took about an hour on it.

Thanks Ester. I might have to do some this weekend then, weather permitting. Trees are always fascinating to draw/sketch, even though we see them all the time.
