So here they are, drawings I did in the field to understand some aspect of tree structure and to get a level of comfort going out there and just sitting and observing. It's a different way of doing things if you're used to sitting in your studio looking at an image on a computer screen. But I like it. It feels authentic and connected to be out there. I think photos have a role to play, too, but I'm still working out what that is.
Okay, that is all.
