the last tree



Dystopian novel cover, anyone?

Painted in photoshop, drawn w/ ball-point pen:



I still find it difficult to draw the left side of trees. I remember Oliver Sacks writing about people with brain damage who couldn't eat the left side of a plate of food, but I think my problem is just that my hand is over the trunk when I draw the left side.

That would make sense, though I can't discern from your sketch that you're struggling. Keep a'drawing that tree!

Did you ever turn it upside-down (your paper, not the tree) so your hand isn't over the trunk anymore? I am not sure if that would work because then it would be harder to get the proportions, wouldn't it? I don't know...

I like your trees. They keep getting better. :)
