This is modeled after a Leonardo Da Vinci piece.  Leonard spent a lot of time as an apprentice studying the figure and how clothing and cloth covered the body and how the folds reflect light and retain shadows.  This was done on grey paper with black pencil...

Trees sketched in brown ink
So on this snowy day, I tried to experiment with doing trees in just brown ink.  Sort of okay, not everything works, but more practice and experiments are the path to improvements.

Tree study in Brown
This is tonight's post.  This is done in brown ink and two tones of brown pencils.  Probably warmer in this than the outside temp here in Maryland.  Staying warm inside by the fire.

China Bicycles
Earlier in the year, I traveled to China for work.  I did not get to see as much as I would have liked but what I did see was interesting and unique.  Lots of bicycles and tricycles, like the sketch of this one I did in colored pencils.

San Antonio Cross - Block-in
This is a block-in of a Woden Cross in a pot in the court yard of a Mission outside of San Antonio Texas.  I will finish the wall detail, add detail to the cross and and the flowers to the pot to finish this painting.
