Worked some more on the beach tree (I don't have a clue what kind of tree it is). Added some color with conte sticks and pastel pencils (only had 2 blues so the sky looks a bit wonky). I love drawing and painting trees - mostly the trunks with twisted limbs and roots curving around on top of the ground.
Hey, check out this site of local Northern Kentucky artist and muscian,
Robyn Roth (http://www.nomadical.net/gallery1.htm. Don't you just love her artwork? I do! Especially her indigenous people's portraits.
