During the tidying up that I mentioned last time, I came across some drawings that I hadn't posted before - often precursors to or developments of things already posted, but hopefully interesting.
A local hedge group, Malmesbury Wilts
Hedge in South Island New Zealand previously embroidered,
here traced in 2B pencil, smudged and some negative spaces erased
Olive tree traced, enlarged in size and flipped horizontally and reproduced
Tree as above, repeated twice and reduced in size
A favourite tree group in Aberdeenshire, Scotland,
negative spaces filled with 4B graphite stick and blended
We are returning to Scotland tomorrow for three weeks of (maybe) good weather. I will no doubt commune again with this last tree group in its beautiful setting in Glen Tanar, near Aboyne. The peace and tranquility of this place have been a continuing delight over 45 years of marriage.
I will hopefully find time to draw and if Blogger allows, will post occasionally during our stay.
