A Pencil drawing on paper

I wanted to experiment with pencil drawing and Photoshop. So: no inks and no graphics tablet!

I'm really pleased with it, and I plan to do some more on a similar spooky theme.

The imaginative subject idea probably popped into my mind after walking through Knocksink Wood, near Enniskerry, County Wicklow here in Ireland.

The following images go from pencil on paper, then into Photoshop and coloured and tweaked.
