Small Detour from the Trees

This is the first in a series of Black and White Swirl pictures I am doing. This was done with a micron pen though and not ball point. I decided I like ball point better for now because of the subtleties you can introduce. All of these pen pictures are done in a sketch book I have with the most wonderfully smooth paper. I bought it on a whim in a Japanese book store and am really glad I did. I may venture onto Bristol Board soon though.

Old Apple Tree

This is a very old apple tree that I took a bunch of pictures of quite a few years ago near Lake Stevens here in Washington.

Pen and Ink Roots

These tree root drawings are from pictures I have taken of interesting trees or their roots. I think this tree is in a cemetery in Everett. Yesterday's picture was taken in a park somewhere around Olympia.
