Gnarled old tree

Another tree study. I don't know where all this observational drawing is headed exactly, but the last few months or so I've had the urge to draw the things around me. I do believe using real life, and nature as one's starting point is a good way to develop a visual vocabulary of one's own. I suspect something is being stored away in the back of my mind as I spend these hours looking at things and recording them.


  1. I agree with your points. And I think that affection about surroundings makes observation. In real is the abstract hidden, in my opinion.

  2. Hi bh yoo, I'm not sure I understand 100%, but I enjoyed reading your ideas nonetheless! Cheers
