Banyan Branch 100

Deborah Perlman
The graceful bend of this beautiful banyan tree branch was intriguing. I printed the original photo onto drawing paper, then cut it into sections and mounted the pieces, with some elevated to interpret the dynamics of the space, creating a bas-relief effect. After mounting, I drew into the piece with colored pencil, graphite, and charcoal, to emphasize shape, form, and shadow.
Try it!
