The old oak tree behind our cottage in Muskoka has weathered many bad storms over the years and is still standing, so I was inspired to do a pen and ink sketch. I loved the texture of the bark and the use of contour and wavy lines representing shape and shadows. Heavy ink work was used to show the deep hollow of the tree. Crisscross line work for the grass, loosely drawn leaves and small plants helps to ground the tree in this sketch.
Original pen and ink. Size: 9"w x 12"h x .75"d. Professionally framed in a black wood frame with a white mat under glass.
