Drawing the uniqueness of pine trees
|Pine trees (pinus sylvestris) W & N artists charcoal on 70g sketchpad A3|
I always thought of pine bark as having a kind of elongated diamond pattern. But I didn't realise how strange and unique those bark patterns really are until I drew these trees in detail. I could safely say that every single fragment of bark was a different shape from the other. Sometimes you also see odd looking faces peering out at you.
