Branch Drawings (From Observation)

I spent last week dog sitting in the suburbs. It was unusually warm for late March/early April and the dog and I spent much time in the back yard. A few trees were just starting to form buds and I took advantage of three warm days in a row to make a few drawings of the branches of the surrounding trees. The drawings are all India Ink on 14 x 17 Bristol paper and have a slightly naive and simplified quality as I attempted to make sense of the complex branching systems I was observing.
