Today I drew these three oaks in my backyard. I love how the two older trees curve, making such interesting shapes in the air (negative spaces, in artistic terms).
I wanted to draw them in particular because the middle tree will have to come down before winter, because it is rotting at the base. I'm hoping the little oak tree sprouting from its roots will grow into something as lovely and interesting.
