My first edm challenge-Paint a tree or trees.


Tree sketch

Edm challenge no 15

Thought I,d show something other than birds on this post, but you cant have trees without birds so I tried to suggest some flying among the tress but it wasn,t very successful.

This is the view from my office/junk room, I have feeders in the trees and when I am working at my computer I love to keep an eye on the birds on and around the feeders.

I sketched this yesterday using a present I got from my kids at Christmas, Promarker pens and a Pilot drawing pen. I really enjoyed using them they are very direct, although  I could do with some other colours.The biggest problem with the markers is that they seep through the paper so you need a card or something underneath ,or you cant use the next pages. Think I will try them on mountboard.

I did this same sketch in 2009 using pen and watercolour, its interesting to compare them.

I have had so many comments on my postings in the last few days and still am not sure where to post back so I will just say a big thank you to all of you who have taken an interest and you can be sure I am taking an interest in your work. I have never been on such an interactive site before.
