Super magnified line drawings--O'Keefe connection. I chose this piece because it is a contour line drawing of observed image. I too am drawing pine cones as well. I like the use of line to create the organic composition.
I had a hard time believing this was real, but this is the Rainbow Eucalyptus (Hawaii, U.) which grows in the South-Pacific area. The amazing color variations are naturally formed when the tree sheds bits of its bark as it grows.
