Tree Studies

Trees at Timberlake Drive

During our visit, Lewis encouraged me to explore the top of the yard and pointed me in the direction of some great rocks. I did draw the rocks. I then later settled to do some more studies of the Pacific Madrone trees. They have the most amazing red bark underlying moss and other dark shades of growth during the winter. Thank you Lewis.

Study along the River

This beautiful tree seems to be two trees next to each other at first glance from the bridge in Tanabe. We soon determined, it is a huge trunk with two very distinct branches that seem to create two trees. I have since documented it with photos with hopes to revisit and complete a drawing in its entirety.
