Three drawings of a Larch Tree

An early start on a Monday morning took me onto the fell to exercise, but not just walking. After finding a nice spot to sit down (a great start to a sunny Monday morning), I shut my eyes for a couple of minutes, opened them and immediately started to draw. With biro held loosely I started to translate onto paper what my eye quickly picked out. The emphasis was not to look down at the paper until I'm done drawing. I didn't allow myself to use any other materials other than a biro and a bit of scrap paper.  

Quite an interesting image, and not too disappointing.

First attempt.

The second attempt, I peeked a little.

Third attempt - Totally cheated by peeking, and using graphite and watercolour.
