seascape from tree roots
This is the seascape I did from the previous tree root sketch.
The curves of it suggested one of those arches of rock carved out by the sea.
I started out with free lines in ink, using a piece of thin wood as a pen. Then I just kept working into it, trying to keep some of the lines of the sketch. It's about 14x10 inches. I could certainly work further from it but it's staying as an experiment rather than a finished piece I think.
I'd swirl the lines a bit more in doing it again to regain the dynamic shapes of the wood, which have got a little lost here?
Later a small sketch that made a landscape from a flint stone ....
