here are two drawings I did yesterday. I started out doing a tree in my side yard and it kind of morphed into something darker. Then I took that and did the second tree based on a memory of seeing a hummingbird nest on a low branch of a pine tree many years ago. Of course it is all from my head and kind of fun. I used the Caran D Ache watersoluble pencils and drew then washed them with a brush and clear water then I went back in several times and added detail and erased areas. It is hard for me to stay with the pencil since I want to dress it up with color but these little dark style drawings did not need color in my opinion. I thelped to be watching the Harry Potter movie "Order of the Phoenix" while drawing for a creepy factor!
