The Sketchbook Project - Forests


FORESTS

This is one of those shots taken from the passenger seat of my car, driving down the highway at 60 miles an hour. Surprisingly the shot turned out okay, at least for the Sketchbook Project. I cut it in two to fit across the spread and then extended the lines and colors, with a little insert taken within one of the coast range forests.

  2. I like this one because of the beautiful composition and because you added some abstract shapes on the left and bottom right.

  4. Thanks, Bren. I saw a sketchbook years ago in which a woman in Gig Harbor, WA used her landscape photos and extended them in a similar way. I’m glad I remembered it, but not so well that I’m exactly copying her.
    Thanks for your comments, Ghislaine and Jane. I enjoy your blogs, too.

  7. It's really neat how you use your photos as a focal point and extend them with your art. Forests are a big part of the NW.
