Artist's Description

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). The paper is not as heavy as Bristol board but stronger and not as smooth as print paper, so it was more suitable for this piece as I was also using pastels and markers).
I was inspired by the Japanese artist Hiroshi Senju, who tends to limit his colors in his paintings. Sometimes he paints an image where the background is the complimentary colors of the subject. 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:
