Silver Birch sketch

This drawing was made on the spot in the Lonnin near my dad’s house in the Lake-district. The motif spoke to me as for my previous piece. The trees seemed luminous and pale against the dry stone wall and vegetation. I stood and drew on the spot in the late afternoon, using soft pencil and oil-pastel. I made the drawing over two sessions going back at about the same time to get the light the same. I took photos as well which I will also share. This ancient narrow track is providing a wealth of inspiration.
