Tree Trunks.

When I was outside the other day I ended up getting very distracted by all the moss and lichen growing on the trees. It is so beautiful, so interesting, I had to take some photos. It was too cold to sit and draw (my hands were shaking just taking the photos) so I settled for capturing images on my camera instead, and I'm pretty pleased with the textures I managed to record. What do you think?
Next time I will have to bundle up and take my sketchbook outside for a trip! Have you done any drawing outside lately, or is it just too cold for you?

  3. Those textures are fantastic! As a textile artist, you must be so in love with moss, lichen and such - they must be truly inspirational to you!

  6. I love nature, but once my son was born I was forced to become a nature enthusiast.. bugs.. turtles.. mud you name it. Trees really are such a beautiful thing to look at.
