2/8: Weeping one and weeping two – new vertical sketches

Weeping Willow drawings – Faber Castel/Caran d’ache pencils.

Today’s sketches are pretty straight forward and I think pretty effective

I’ve just used just two different colour paper backgrounds

There are several other variations that I’m going to explore.

The only drawback is that I haven’t  discovered a yellow colour pencil that can reproduce the bright sunlight effect in the photographs, even with lighter layers underneath. I could achieve it through pastel/paint, the mediums that I’m hoping to take the images into soon.

Overall I am really pleased. More next week…
