After posting Shenandoah and a suggestion to use watercolor with it came up I got an idea. I went through and found an old thread on drawing using embossing technique. So I took a photo I had been saving for a special drawing and printed it to size I needed and placed it over a piece of Bristol paper and traced hard as I could.
This is the result.
I have used my dip pen with artist inks, and charcoal sticks both black and white.
I still need to fill in the branches but so far its been a fun thing to try outside my normal scope of things.
Any suggestions or input is welcome as I am making this up as I go along I don't know what to ask yet.
I have no plans to forget and leave this one out in the rain!
