Part two. Project 1. Exercise 1. Detail and tone

I enjoyed this exercise. I found I instinctively scribbled roughly into the shape then used more organised lines to work in the dark tones. I also used different types of line for different textures. Longer, smoother lines for the bare areas, rougher lines for the bark and lichen.

I think these were¬†quite effective drawings. The shadow in the second picture gives it a sense of being grounded that the first¬†image doesn’t have.
