A New Drawing of Angel Oak by Charleston Artist Katherine M. Schneider

The light is softer and the air is sweeter under the sheltering branches of the Angel Oak.
What a wonderful way to spend a fall morning in the Lowcountry.
Today's charcoal and conte drawing of Angel Oak is a welcome change from my plein air painting in oils.
Drawing on location with charcoal and other dry media is a looser, more direct artistic treatment of a subject which helps keep my oil paintings fresh and expressive.
I also enjoy the unique beauty and expressiveness of the artist's "mark making" evident in a Fine Art Drawing.

Here's a link to more of my Live Oak drawings and paintings.

The woods along Angel Oak Rd. are full of red survey markers signaling the soon to be cleared woodlands surrounding Angel Oak Park to make way for high density housing and commercial development.
