I was so taken with the textures and color of the American Planetree bark in yesterday's blog post that I tried a sketch of the bark in my art journal today.
I used gouache watercolors (Prussian blue, Naples yellow, spectrum red), a Pigma pen, and Caran d'Ache watercolor pencils (yellow ochre, greyish black, sepia, black).
The art experience was interrupted several times by experimentation in the kitchen with a sourdough bread recipe, so my concentration was broken.
The sketch is so-so. The bread was better.
