rough trees

One of several old drawings chosen for watercolor practice, I think I drew it in Lincoln Park in Springfiled, IL in 2002 or so. It always stood out among my outtakes, since the lines were so bold. So I gave it a second look this year and added watercolor to it, starting with the green in the leaves and grass, then adding the yellow background diagonals and finishing with the tree trunks.

6 1/4 x 10 7/8 inches, watercolor pencil on printed copy of ballpoint pen original done on-site, 2019. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi color print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP ink which meets the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
