Ancient Trees, Lullingstone Park, Samuel Palmer
Graphite on cream wove paper, 10×15″ (26x37cm)
In the collection of the Yale Center for British Art. In addition to a zoom, the museum’s page includes a download link from which you can download medium-resolution (1mb) and high-resolution (18mb) versions of the image.
Also available on the Google Art Project and Wikimedia Commons (hi-res 6mb).
In the midst of all of the options for traditional and digital media available today, it’s sometimes easy to overlook the wonders of the humble pencil.

I am an amateur and always loved to sketch . Mostly with pencil, now exploring with charcoal and colored pencils, hoping to move on to acrylics. Anything that I can learn will greatly be appreciated and I know helpful and I would love to one day be called a professional and try to sell some art. This would be my dream.
