Ascension – view of autumn leaves

Ascension in black & white, framed

Ascension in black & white, framed

Originally I took a photo of a tree through the sun roof of my car on a cloudy day. The leaves were falling fast, so outdoor painting wasn’t an option. I transferred the image to a much larger surface using the old-fashioned grid technique. This pencil drawing took about a week. Inking took even longer! But the result is a very large pen-and-ink, almost photographic (but not quite).


Ascension – up close detail

Here is a close-up. The original photograph had thousands of fine branches, so creative deletion was required!
