Best Two of Three

These are two sketches (of three I did this morning) based on photos of these two trees by the side of Westford Road near my house in Massachusetts. The first time I really "saw" these trees, I actually thought there was only one, because it was the shape of the foliage that caught my eye. I have photographed them twice now, standing in the street, watching for cars. The mulitple drawings came about due to my friend Rick telling me about a class in which the students are asked to do 10 thumbnails of the same scene, in order to learn better composition. I think there is something to it!
