Triple Pine
Triple Pine

I sketched this pine one afternoon and liked the image enough to go back and draw it again at a different time of day. I ended up taking several pictures of it, as it was on a path I walk regularly. I settled on a great moment from early morning when the top of the trees around it were lit and the sun was beginning to break on the grasses around it. I worked in a lot of charcoal drawing while revising this and left several areas exposed in the end. I also painted a bit more like I had been drawing to mimic the charcoal, since I liked its effects so much.
