I am very thankful for everyone’s interest and responses, much appreciated.
The Japanese knotweed is drying and getting hard at my area. A friend has some at the edge of his yard and i plan to cut some for making ink pens.
I love the look of the ink and charcoal in both of these. The tones work so well in the first piece, and you've done a beautiful job with the water and reflections. Really enjoying the slightly more stylised treatment of the trees in the second work, and all the wonderful light and detail on the gnarly foreground tree.
