Gnarly Old Tree
First of all let me thank everyone that responded so kindly to my April fools joke. I would have never imagined that I would have gotten so many responses, and so many concerns on what was going on. That’s why I published a winner as soon as I had one, because of the guilt I felt and to assure all my friends out there, that everything was just fine. I will never pull this one again, so the next time I publish something similar it will be for real.
As for the pen and watercolor wash above, it’s 7″ x 10″ as was drawn with a tech pen, a fine brush, and watercolors. I was undecided on whether to add the green or keep it just gray and black, but I have drawn so many trees in the past that were just black and white, I decided to add a splash of color. But I did decide to keep it just one additional color, which is a sage green, and only painting the tree and a few rocks for a mold effect. Keeping everything else just the pen and ink. I hope that you enjoy it, those who are still visiting and talking to me that is!
