View Full Version : Watching Over Sparrows - FINISHED
06-02-2014, 11:44 AM
Now that I have a few scratchboards done I'm wanting to experiment with subject matter more and start doing things that are more personal to me. So here is my start with this one.
WIP Watching Over Sparrows. 5x7. From my own reference photos and partially designed in Photoshop.
I am really enjoying this one so far. It's more challenging mentally for me and technically too since I'm kind of winging it (pun there?) on composition and values. But I hope to create a moody piece with some areas a bit vague. We'll see! Maybe it will turn into a series...
Comments and suggestions always welcome!
