Tree Sketches

 
A fun sketch.
(In case you are wondering... that horizontal line on top is the middle seam of my sketch book)

 
Another one... should have put a koala on this tree...

Hope you are having a nice week.


Update: 
Thanks Diane for your comment. Check out this link for a photo of  tap coming out of an real tree.

A koala would look nice in there. Love them both - the first one makes me laugh.

I love the second drawing - it would make a gorgeous photograph!

The spigot tree is quite amusing!
(Perhaps this is the new way of extracting maple syrup!)

Francisca said...

Yep, a smiling koala would've added a touch of whimsy to the second sketch too.

I always love your sketches and these are so fun!

Viola said...

My picture was not snow that fell.. It was snow lying on the balcony.. I was surprised hearing you've never seen snow! =)

Thanks for your comment! :)

You are very talented. I love the whimsy of the faucet on the tree trunk with the bird below. :)

Trees are difficult to sketch you have done a good job. I actually saw a tree with a tap in it at Emma Gorge Resort on El Questro property in the Kimberley.

Thanks Diane
I found it! Haha, I googled it and it led me back to you! So I'm going over to your blog now!

The spigot was a wonderful touch. the other tree sketch is enjoyable too with or without wild life. I like the crosshatching. You still haven't told me what pen you use?

I thought the cookie on your blog test 2 was a cookie I've seen before. It wasn't gobbledygook. It needed a few sprinkles for color.

Hi Linda

Sorry I must have missed your question. I use uni pin fine liners and staedtler pigment liners from sizes 0.05 to 0.8. I usually only use 3 sizes (0.05/0.1, 0.3 and 0.8). I also carry around a few shades of grey Faber Castell pitt artist pens for shading, which sometimes comes in handy.

I was at the art shop yesterday and bought a set of Letraset aqua promarkers. :) more materials to play with!

Happy weekend, Ev

Love the tab on the first and the crosshatching on the second. Beautiful and unique ;-)
