This cedar is really more of a shrub that was clinging to a rock in a garden by Lake Como in Italy. What interested me most was the clumping scale-like leaves. Their arrangement reminded me of a flower in full bloom. It was also a pleasure to draw the winding branches.
This drawing is 9″ x 6″ on Sennelier Bristol, the ink is Kremer Pigments Bister, the pen nib is a No. 30 Spencerian Bronze Falcon. Lots of paintings to see on my website!
