Three Trees

30 March, 2021.

I took a short hike through Martha Lafite Thompson Wildlife Sanctuary today. My goal was to wander until I found some trees to sketch, and in that regard my quest was successful. This group of three caught my attention as I trudged up a hill. Rather than the entire tree, I was most interested in the composition the bottom portions created. The pattern hasn’t been in my tool kit for quite some time and just felt right for this study.

    I used to use that kind of cross hatching a lot…it’s perfect here! and what wonderful trees…

      Yup, this use of pattern and hatching dates back to my early days as an editorial illustrator.
