Walk Forty-four - Backlit clouds and trees

backlit
walk44

Still busy but I made myself walk a bit further this evening. Pen and ink really demonstrate the madness of this activity of drawing. You look at a view that comprises all the colours of the rainbow, that includes solid tree trunks and insubstantial wispy clouds, where you can see every single blade of grass in front of you and you try to distill that all down to a few black lines. And then even more amazingly when we look at black marks of a line drawing our imagination can fill in the gaps.

These clouds look very playful - like they're just planning where to dump their load - on your sketchbook if they can :) Lovely grass.

You guessed it alison.
Yes pedalpower I was sitting on the ground on, it turns out, something rather evil smelling - oh what I'm prepared to suffer for my art!
