Using colored pencil & technical pen, I drew a different crop of pixie cups today. These I found with Cassie on our first hikes of 2020. There’s a close relationship between my time in the woods, my efforts in photography, and my drawings of Nature. I wrote about it here. It makes me happy to know exactly where these little lichens live, and what Cassie was getting up to as she pottered around while her dad took a few pictures.
These little subjects, moss, lichen, woodgrain, mushrooms, etc. exhibit colors, patterns, textures, and volumes that I enjoy trying to capture in my artwork. I definitely don’t feel I’ve mastered it.
Thanks for having a look!
