Treez 00

"treez 00" pen and neo colours
by Belinda Lindhardt


Here is a couple of little sketches i did last night. They are leaning to the right because i have a tree in my backyard that i have been "watching" throughout various times of the day/ night, this particular tree was next to a larger tree that was blown down in storms earlier this year and so all its branches lean to the right as the other tree was blocking its growth. My sketches aren't as per my backyard tree they are just from my head :)

I think these actually looked better before i put colour onto them :( but i cant help myself i find it hard to know when to stop :) Next one i will not put too much colour on i promise :)

Oh and whats the "00" you might ask on the title ? Well as you may or may not of read this is all part of keeping track of my work read my blog post here. While this is not a completed work so therefore doesn't fall under my other filenames / numbers, i am going to be doing lots of these tree sketches as i enjoy them. So i thought i would start giving them their own little naming convention and means they are easier to name/ save / post. I have given them their own label treez :) pssss. Did i tell you i am pedantic with the organizing of my files ? cause if you haven't guessed i am :)

Like the sketches Belinda...

I was going to tell you the other day that I've been using your filing system and it is really working for me. This weekend, when I got some reference shots for a commission, I knew right where to put them, what to call them, etc. Previously, I had commission stuff in a whole separate folder from my other artwork, this makes it all easier. And, I started a sketches folder too...called it xxx_sketches in my artwork folder, then inside the files are 001_poplartree, 002_treesbyroad, etc. That way I have unique names, but can also search to get all the poplar sketches, or face sketches, etc. Thanks again for sharing that!

Very nice tree sketches, with a great sense of movement in them.
Very neat way to organize files, I really need to start doing something similar to that. :)

Belinda, Nice trees. I see no problem with the color.

I too, like your filing system. See if I can adapt. Habits are hard to break. :) Or make.

Later,
Jo

These are so lovely! I love trees but am always too afraid to tackle them. I have some favourite trees too which I watch on a regular basis and love watching the colours and lines change as the light in the day moves around and as the seasons change. One of these days.......
