Back in June I did a little plein air sketch of a pine tree while I was on my lunch break. I am lucky enough to have a lot of inspiration here in Forest Park so I am never scratching my head with the dreaded "what should I paint?" problem. Anyways, after a few of these lunch time sketches I realized that my paintings look a lot better with some pen drawing in them. So two months later (today) I went back to the same spot and added some detail in pen. The results just look a lot more "me". I will look out for more pine trees to paint because the needles are pretty fun.
