Not ANOTHER Danny tree! (Just kidding, of course!)

Hey, this one isn't nekkid! At least, not all the way. This is awesome. It's got a very delicate, lacy feel to it, almost Chinese. Have you ever tried Chinese brush painting?

I'll second that!! Sheesh, an hour?? Pretty awesome for just an hour!! Do you prefer the Microns over the tech pen for sketching? They sure work well for you!

A fine tree. Decided to do something a little more reasonable, size-wise that is?

Is it just me, or does anyone else see Dr. Suess in this? (Not the author, just the style.)

Nice one Danny...I find it has a pleasing tranquil feel to it and definitely oriental.
Keep them coming.

Thanks you guys, you are all AWESOME!

This should give you an idea on how weird I am. This past Saturday we were coming back from somewhere (can't remember where) and I said I felt like eating a hamburger. Leodra said great but asked if we could swing by the drug store so she could pick up some tissue paper..(she's got a cold) So, we dropped off Leodra and the kidz and I circled the parking lot. Well, the parking lot had these mesquite trees throughout it and they were totally pruned up...reminded me of the Lion King or the Serengeti. LOL...Went to the restaurant pulled out the sketch pad and came up with this.

Thanks Monica, I've drawn a tree with my Chinese brush. I don't know if I would call it painting.

Chris! Symmetry...wow, didn't even try to do that. Fast, nah. I can always draw in line fast. It's those damn dotz that take FOREVER.

Rapolina and Murray, I like that a lot.

Jamie, you are so funny Don't ever change.

Mel, I haven't sketched with the Rapidographs much. I like the Microns cuz they are handy. Going to try to buy another .13 rapidograph to keep in my bag. I'm really starting to lean towards them more and more. I just like the smaller lines and the consistancy.

Els, LOL yes, an hour...he he he. I can draw trees that fast cuz that is all I seem to draw.......

Ray! Dr Suess!! LMAO don't I need some funky colors or something. and Reasonable..Ha Me! LOL...Wife wouldn't let me drag the treehouse into the Denny's (restaurant) :P

Dave, thank you! I'll keep torturing you guys with them until you finally tell me to stop or I run out of trees.

No don't stop. I love your trees. You do, do them so fast. This one has a nice look to it. Drawing in parking lots now, huh. LOL I scribble out ideas in reastaurants sometimes. Have to keep paper in case an idea pops into my head cause if I don't write it down, it leaves my head and never returns. I guess it gets lost in all that emptiness...hehehe...........

My first impression was an embrace, too.
I can't tell you how nice it is to hear of someone else who uses the fine tip microns- my favorite pen!
If you start to run out of trees (shouldn't take long in AZ) drag your family for a vacation up here to Washington- we gots plenty! (and all those former Enron and .com folks now working at Denney's could use the tourist tips! )
