A relatively tall tree grows in a traffic circle just next to the Tibetan Monastery (which I had sketched a couple months ago) in the Greenwood neighborhood. For day 4 of the 5-Day Black & White Challenge, I used a Kuretake brush pen to sketch the tree (plus a gray colored pencil for the annoying car that parked in front of me). The sketch seemed to be missing something besides color, and I wasn’t as happy with it as I have been with the previous black-and-white sketches I’ve done this week. I tried again with color, and I think I was better able to capture a sense of depth this time.
I wish the crow had stuck around for the second sketch! (I know I could have faked it in. . . I’m too honest a sketcher for my own good.)
