Moleskin Sketch Camp Hidden Valley 2019 #4

Project Description

This was a challenging sketch for a few reasons. One is the subject matter itself: a wound in the bark of this tree. There was just so much going on with that cool, plated texture that it was easy to lost my place. There was also a nice colony of mosses and lichens that I didn’t represent well. The big challenge, though, was that I opted to draw this one while standing (it faced a road/high foot traffic area, so it wouldn’t have been great to sit and get comfortable. Standing there was questionable enough). I think I was starting to get the general vibe, if not an accurate representation, but all my joints asked me to stop and move on to something else.

Please let me know what you think, it makes my brain happy.
