dartmoor tree drawings

Here are some drawings I made of trees on Dartmoor a few weeks ago, when Valisa and I were staying with the Reeve family. Dartmoor has the most amazing trees. I experimented with a few different things while drawing these: background vs no background, simple vs more complex, anthropomorphised trees, using white on brown to make the trees stand out more, various ways to show the twists and turns of gnarled branches.

(See previous posts from Dartmoor, including a visit to Alan Lee's studio - he's a master at drawing trees.)
