Tree Trunk Sketch

Pencil sketch drawing of a trio of tree trunks. It’s a simple little sketch, it would be beyond my skills, but it’s simplicity makes it interesting to me. It poses a mystery – what sort of trees are they? Do they still have leaves or is it winter and they’ve already fallen? Or, maybe it’s fall and they’re full of colorful leaves. Or, maybe it’s spring and they’re full of buds or even flowers.

See, betcha didn’t think this little pencil sketch was full of so much promise.

Have fun with it, it’s a lovely public domain tree image.

This is a number of drawings from William Walker (b. 1821) that he included in his Handbook of Drawing published in 1880.
