7Sep2014 Twisted Tree Sketch With Ink Posted in Uncategorized by Make Something Mondays Another sketch. This one is with ink instead of graphite. I saw a really old tree that twisted in the middle and it inspired me. You know you want to share it:TweetEmailPocketPrintLike this:Like Loading... Related

I see a woman running from left to right 🙂
Haha so that emotion came out pretty well then 😉
Emotion or obsession? lol
Uhh both, haha!
Nice! It reminds me of a woodcutting.
Yeah, I can see where you get that idea. All of the harsh lines really make it seem like wood.
I took a printmaking class where we made a print from carving a wood block. One was of a tree. It’s neat you can get a similar effect from drawing.
That’s awesome! Did you like it? I’ve taken a few woodworking classes and they were so much fun.
Yeah, I enjoyed the woodcutting and the etching by hand of a fish. The etching with acid didn’t turn out as well. Printmaking does allow one to interact a lot with the medium. Carving out the wood adds a new dimension to the experience.
Yea, print media is one of my favs. I like it more than woodcutting, but the results of both are pretty cool.
Thank you! The subject goes so well with the crosshatching style.

This is a beautiful sketch!
Thank you very much! Trees are one of my favorite things to draw.
I love painting them! I took the summer off from painting because trying to appease the demands of a job and trying to paint was to stressful but now that summer of almost over and things will soon be settling back down I am hoping to paint some fall inspired trees and stuff!!!!
That sounds fantastic! I’m excited to see your new stuff. I can understand why you’re not painting right now. It is stressful to paint regular and hold something full time. Sketching is a bit easier because there’s very little clean up involved (if any) and you can carry a sketchbook wherever.
I have never thought of it that way. I guess I’ve never tried because I can manipulate a paint brush and use it to do so much more that what you can manipulate a pen to do.
That is true. You could always sketch your ideas for painting while you’re out and about and then review and paint them when you have time. I do that sometimes.
I will def. give that some serious consideration. thanks!
Good to hear 🙂
