This sketch is from a photo that I took weeks ago of a natural Holly Tree in our yard. It seemed fitting to wait until December First in that Holly is usually associated with the holidays. This tree is about 15 feet tall and we have another male version of the tree (without berries) that is about 30 feet tall. Both of these were on the property when we purchased the land to build our house. Lamy fountain pen with Noodler’s black ink, Daniel Smith and Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
