pencil drawing 9 x 11 inches
For the last week, I've been drawing trees everyday for the Drawing and Painting Trees class that I'm taking on line, and I'm loving it. The class is taught by Deborah Paris who is a tonalist painter. Deborah's way of painting with oil is different than the a la prima approach that I've been working on. We will start working with painting towards the end of the one month class.
All my drawings, so far, have been with pencil, a media I haven't used for a finished drawing in ages and I had forgotten how much I enjoy it.
Spring still isn't here. Though it was sunny for a few days and warm enough to sit outside and draw on Saturday, we've had snow and rain for the last few days, so I'm drawing trees that I see from my windows, and, despite the rain, I've been walking in the woods everyday, seeing trees in a new way.
