Those Kansas City Royals are keeping me up late at night!
Today I'm sketching alder branches to go with a poem I'll be calligraphing.
At first, I tried watercolor pencils.
For some reason, I almost like this best in monochrome.
But I do like a hint of winter sky behind. I used mostly blue here, but added a touch of pink of a snowy sky look.
Then here's a bare branch, touched with snow. I used Conte crayons for this sketch.
I haven't yet decided which one to use with the poem.
What do you like best?
Thanks for stopping by!
