An old and graceful tree that grows on the sandstone. It is located in the Affensteine area, which is a popular hiking destination in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. The rock formation, that creates a kind of natural rock bridge, is called Kleines Prebischtor. I associate wonderful memories of long hikes with this place.
This monochrome drawing is dedicated to majestic trees, their strong roots and the peaceful ambience in the middle of the forest.
I particularly like to graphically depict the organic forms of roots and branches. Creating a complex network of delicate black ink lines, I try to focus on the visible and pure forms of the tree. But the idea of flowing vitality inside the tree is also part of the design.
Long hikes through the forest and to remote places are my source of inspiration. When I spend my time in nature, I often have my sketchbook with me to make quick sketches on the spot. They serve as a guide for me before I start to draw a specific tree or landscape in detail.
In my eyes, trees and their strong roots stand for vitality, persistence and the cycle of life.
