Sketch book - first spread

This is the first spread of my moleskin sketch book. The text translates:

Pens, colors, eraser
A brand new book, full of blank pages
Creativity, lust for creation, hesitation, expectation
All possibilities lay open

Sketched with pencil, filled in with ink.

(I just wish I could use watercolors in my moleskin, but I guess I better get a moleskin watercolor book as well).

Inspired by Nina Johannson I wanted to to my own version of the Pointsettia. In Sweden this is by far the most popular flower at Christmas, we even call it "christmas flower".

EDM # 252

EDM # 252, draw a pine or fir

HB pencil in moleskin sketch book.

A small branch from a pine tree in our back yard (we have four or five huge pine trees). It's way too cold and snowy here for me to draw outdoors, so I let the tree come inside instead.

I must admit I simplified the branch a bit, all the needles made it quite difficult to draw. But nontheless I am happy with the result, I wasn't sure I would be able to pull it off.

Edit - put in a better photograph on jan 9.
