My intention here was two-fold, improve my perspective skills and render the pine tree more accurately. My pine trees have generally been a mess of slashes of green at odd angles and I wanted to slow down and give this tree consideration. I’m a long way from where I want to be, but this is a big improvement. I used a little pen on the houses and again find myself frustrated by how sloppy it makes the sketch look. The windows had straight lines when I penciled them in but the pen made them jaggedy. It’s a platinum carbon pen and I do love it so I think it’s a matter of more control.
