Pencil Sketches in the Woods
If you visited my travel blogs, you’ve seen some of these images in “reality” there. Here, however, you will see a more artistic rendering of the images – compliments of my computer.

At first, I had thought these were birch trees. But no, they are alders! And, in the fall, the color of their leaves is a lovely golden color. But, now, there’s not a trace of gold – only green. Still, for this sketch, I chose to focus on the white of the tree trunks and their pattern as they stand in the woods.
