Warrior Against The Elements
Photograph - Digital Pencil Rendering From A Photograph
Centuries old, growing at 8000 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this tree is a warrior against the elements. winds over 100 miles per hour rake this granite ridge and winter snows bury this elevation under more than 80 feet of snow. Growing from a crack in the solid granite this tree endures drought in the dry summer months. A testament to the tenacity of living things.
Sometimes an image looks very intriguing as a black and white pencil rendering. A simple understatement sometimes has more impact than a full color image. This image has been digitally rendered as fine detailed pencil drawings. They remind me of the delicate "silver point" drawings that I created on gessoed paper using a piece of sterling silver wire while a student at the Art Institute Of Boston. The silver would darken as it oxidized creating a very subtle and soft look. These images look stunning in the larger sizes, matted and framed.
