Reading Under a Tree 2
Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010
Technically I think this should be 1, as this sketch is a bit older than the one I posted last week. The willow tree shows a definite influence from Dr. Seuss — or perhaps Lawrence Yang — and the figure is taking shelter in the lee of the tree. Apparently, I also forgot to draw in clothes, since I put most of my attention into the tree, oops.
The colored background is actually from the sketchbook I was using, which has thick, creamy paper. It’s always interesting how different materials can affect the way the work comes out — I swear almost everything I’ve done in that particular sketchbook has an air of whimsy about it.
