If you go down to the woods today...

 More experiments in ink-rements. Took my inks to the woods with me and luckily it was by a stream so dogs were happy whilst I got lost in the colours. I was trying to capture the vibrant acid green of a spring wood and the dark dark trees amongst the leaves. The one above I just got into drawing the roots and path but thought I"d try a version of just the green behind.
 This one I just wanted to concentrate on the greens, though the scanner hasn't really got the colours from my actual drawing.
 All works in progress, not sure whether to make the background darker in the one below and draw more ferns emerging from the dark. Really enjoyed doing these, and again I was drawn back to the Scots pines, I've done a few paintings of these three trees with their red barks vibrant against the rest of the wood. More fun to be had I think with this ink, I'm enjoying seeing where its taking me...
