Sketch in acrylic ink, tinted graphite and a touch of coloured pencil
I currently have all my classes looking at trees at the moment - considering the individuality of them, looking at various artists past and contemporary. Contemporary includes some friends and also artists I don't know but admire , these include Bridget Hunter. Glen Heath, David Parfitt, David Prentice, David Tress, Kurt Jackson, Shirley Trevena, Cheryl Culver and lots more. I don't have time to add links, sorry, but google them if you are interested? Past includes Mondrian, Klimt, Van Gogh, Monet etc etc etc I really like Mondrian's trees and Klimt too.
There was a page in a sketchbook where I had experimented with tinted graphite, doing a moody image of rain approaching across the bay. It was just a tester and was quite boring. I decided to work over it, keeping it as background and working in grey and white acrylic ink (plus a little more tinted graphite and a touch of coloured pencil). The page is a bit more interesting now :>)
