I went to Almaden Lake in San Jose to sketch with Suhita (@suhitasketch) in the middle of a very hectic week and it was a much needed reset on many levels!
Here ate two takes on the same eucalyptus tree. First one is done by using stencils and printing in my sketchbook with the details added with ink and brush. Second is a gouache interpretation of the same scene.
And here is a look down at the Almaden creek: I started with the stencils to make large shapes and finished with gouache.
