Jackknife Aspens pencil sketch

This sketch was done later in the summer than the previous aspen sketch. The trees have denser foliage as do the surrounding under brush. It was early afternoon with the sun still high in the sky. The shadows behind the trees created a strong contrast against the white aspen bark. There was a lot of random under brush which made it difficult to define individual clumps without over working and becoming too busy. The fore ground was mostly high grass that was turning pale yellow-green due to the time of year. I often see things while I am exploring the woods that stop me dead in my tracks. This was one of those occasions where I just had to attempt to capture the essence of the thing that had caught my attention.

you did a beautiful job identifying the bark from the trees. i love the dark niches- they make even distant white shapes look covered in bark. i enjoy the foreground, too. it has a nice soft touch and help balance the picture.

The depth of this one is amazing. Excellent work. I love the movement of the high grass then the solidity of the aspens. Beautiful capture of nature.

Great. This looks real in a way a photo could not convey or achieve.
The bushes and forest look very thick, the kind of forest I like.
Great drawing.
