new bonsai drawings

Post  chappy56 on Mon Jul 23, 2012 2:25 am

Here are a couple more drawings I've worked on recently.
Hope you like em...
The colored one is from Amy Liang's book "The Living Art of Bonsai"
The other one was just my own.

Chappy56,

The second drawing could easily be achieved by a serissa or clerodendron i.
Good use of negative space. Very decorative. I could also see this as wrought iron.

The first, feels like the canopy needs more work. The actual drawing is however very
pleasant.I would hang it on my living room walls.
Enjoyed.

I really dig that drawing. I have thought about taking up drawing bonsai. Any pointers?

Thanks Adam.
Choose good subject matter, don't waste a bunch of time on the background, pot, or stand.
Use the best paper you can find. It makes a bigger difference than you might think.

Thanks, Chappy. I appreciate the tip. Hopefully I'll be producing stuff half that nice in the future.

Looks like a woodcut, do you do woodcuts?

I haven't for a long time Dendro. This one is just pen and ink...
