Part 3. Expanse. Exercise 1. Sketching individual trees

Due to cold weather I chose to sit indoors but sketch a tree out of the window. A large sycamore tree. As it is winter there were no leaves to sketch but the twigs formed a textural contrast to the larger branches. It was very useful to do these sketches which helped me look at the proportions and bulk of a massive tree. However much I was trying to draw proportionately within the page the edge of the tree went over the edge. I decided in my next drawing to start much smaller than I thought I needed.

Draw a simple outline of the tree’s overall shape
