Plum tree


This morning we had a heavy fog and the plum tree outside the bedroom window was festooned with drops of dew, or fog, or moisture whatever you like to call it. I attempted to show this but how else do you portray it but as little round drops?
My walk tonight was in rubber boots and it is getting slippery on the tracks and boggy in the paddocks, not particularly pleasant but the dogs enjoyed it.
Pen and ink and an A5 sketchbook.

Love the sketch, Penny. I'm not sure how to draw dew on trees or even on grass either, but the idea is certainly there in your sketch. Nice drawing!

That is a task and a half! Dew on trees. Snow would have been easier.
I bought a bottle of white ink at $12 and a pen so will have a go at that this week. I'd better be careful not to tip over that expensive bottle though!
