Lost in wrinkles of bark – draw a tree trunk

apple tree orchard, ink drawing, close-up of bark

Temperatures get chilly these days. After a longer pause I continued to draw in the apple tree orchard. It took some time to pick up the thread again and to find my way through the many labyrinth of wrinkles, plateaus and valleys that the apple tree in front had build in many years of growth. It was like looking down on a prehistoric landscape from an airplane. I finally decided to consider this the final step of the drawing even though I did not work through the whole double sheet.
