I like to doodle, and I like pencils. I like trees, and I like scenery. What better than a pencil-drawing-book-about-trees-and-scenery? What can I say.
The techniques used in this book are extremely helpful, even for no-skill Joe like myself. I bought it probably three years ago, and it is still helpful. I've even learned to draw things I never thought woudld really make much of an interesting sketch idea--rocks! Rocks on the ground. Boulders, pebbles, hunks of volcano spew.
My favorite section is trees, which I love to pieces. Incredibly tall, majestic trees, been around for ages past since I was a wee munchkin, and standing proud for my appreciative eye. The bark detail, the leaf patters, the height, the large variety.
Draw desert canyons. Sketch drifts of clouds. Compose your own tree of might. Create a majestic oak or a finely detailed rotting log. Swoosh your pencil to form trees in the distance, and vegetation nearby. Perhaps a dainty little cottage or country church nestled in the pine slopes of a towering rock formation. With the instruction that will bless you herein, what limit can there be?
