Today, I decided to stick around the yard at home for my drawing session...mostly because I was waiting for the cable guy to come between 8-12 (which he never did). Oddly, trying to get your cable disconnected is not one of the high priority jobs on the cable company's list. Go figure.
Anyway, I decided to go away from the washy, fluid approach of the last few days and go graphic, using black and white only on one. The light this morning was really amazing and creating these patterns across the leaves.
On the other I did some direct tracing...love love love that static look, and then worked back into it with gouache and ink.
