Pure Line

Sometimes I draw using technical drawing tools. In this case a 0.35mm Rotring pen on tracing paper. The tree is drawn freehand but for the background cross hatching I used tee square and set square.
I had originally thought of doing it like this to project onto other images to create further work but this seemed to be a complete statement in itself and so I have left it as it is. It is mounted against white paper on a mount card ready for framing at some point.
The original drawing was done from life at a bird sanctuary near Lancaster.
