Another Pomegranate Tree, 2

Sketching on fabric takes a bit more time than on paper, however, I find it infinitely more interesting. The trick is to use a large-tip pen (0.7 Copic multiliner here) rather than a fine one that would catch on the threads.

The hundreds of slender branches on a pomegranate tree make for a chaotic effect.

It amazes me how compelling this is, the two fabrics doing so much to make it interesting but not distracting even though they are nothing like what you would actually see. Had to look at the big version to study your stitching. Ha! I wondered how you got the sketch-like quality. It actually IS sketched! Beautiful.
