My first piece for drawing day…

Medium: marker, pens, pencil crayons and chalk pastel on a piece of paper in my sketchbook (sketchbook is about letter size, but I scanned only about 8.5″ × 7.5″ of the page).

His style is simple but at the same time intense, where the foreground stands out from the complimentary background. This drawing however is different from his style; I have done another painting before which is closer to his style:

As for the form of the tree, my inspiration came from this:
