This is my attempt at capturing the band of colours I mentioned here. Pretty subtle. It took some observing to be able to distinguish the colours, and even then, it’s probably quite subjective.
I love sketching trees. They’re challenging because of all the detail, but they’re also fun. There are so many different kinds, they each have a different character. and they really encourage varied mark-making and gestures. I can see why landscape painters love to paint them. This is one from my backyard.
Sketched this outside today. Just need to learn to make better marks for believable trees. 😆
This is a plein-air sketch from a few days ago.
