Drawing With String

This drawing is based in memory and imagination, two elements that are very useful resources for artists to draw upon.

If we start at the top of the drawing, you will notice that I have used the string in a twirling motion to give the effects of leaves. Sometimes I have built up the tonal areas by making them darker and sometimes I have made areas lighter to give the effect of form and space. The trunk of the tree has been created by dragging the piece of string up the line of the trunk to create the effect of bark. The grass in the foreground has been produced by dragging the string in short waves in different directions. The space in the background has been achieved by making just a few varied marks to imply distance.
