Winter tree

Continuing my series of tree studies in graphite, here is a drawing of a tree in middle distance, and so showing less detail of texture than the previous two studies. What do you think? I'm not convinced by some of the branches.

Looks like a beautiful tree to me. Very stately and shapely.

Nicely done on this tree. There is something special about using a simple graphite lead to render something with enough detail to engage the viewer. I like it!

I am in awe of your trees, Dave. They take a lot of patience. I'm not sure which branches you aren't convinced by. I wondered about the one on the left (but only after looking very closely) and then I thought, no that is convincing because it give a dimension away from the viewer.

I agree - I so admire your detailed drawings. I'm a very impatient person who often fudges on details. Thank goodness not everyone is like me!
