Sketchbook: Little Shoes

It must be my subconscious mind that is not prepared for my boys to turn 4. Foreshortening makes these look like baby shoes! (Although they are much more worn out). It wasn't until I stood that I realized just how much bigger the shoes are from most any other angle.

Sketchbook: Aleppo Pine

I thought I would try this in pen.  I usually simplify branches by softening edges and painting negative spaces.  It was interesting building this up one line at a time.  Quite a contrast.
