Drawing of a spruce tree finished – final session

spruce tree drawingThe sketches of a spruce tree are finished now. On the third and last evening session I tried to draw the full tree. I took simple measurements with a wooden stick to learn about the proportions : Ratio of tree top and total height, width of the trunk and lateral expansion of the tree top. I used a small bristle brush to draw the masses of the needles and work over those areas with a metal feather later. There is a special silence in the woods, that I enjoy entirely. The sounds of August are coming the fruits of oak and beech trees fall down with typical sounds, only very few birds,mainly woodpeckers, can be heard.

I left the drawings partly unfinished. Viewers can see better how the drawing was made, unfinished drawings inspire the fantasy of viewers more than totally executed ones too
