and at ATC size - http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/04-Apr-2015/30494-marita_atc.jpg

Thanks for some great photos Valri. I may try a few more later. I Loved the Canada Geese pondering a dip.
ATC size drawing using mid grey, ochre and white Liquitex marker pens plus a bit of black Sharpie.
—Eric Ravilious died in WWII or he'd be more famous. His pictures were of ordinary places always using soft greyed colours. Quite a challenge for me.

I like this very much! And I had no idea about Eric Ravillious.....grays and ordinary places -COOL
The grays look fabulous and I'm pretty surprised that it's ATC size

Wow! Jill, hard to believe that this is an ATC - so much content in a little space well done - don't know much about this artist, but will research him.

I thought it is much bigger than ATC. Wonderful work. Uncommon style.

I've resized this Marita as I'm not sure how WC let this through at 1000p!:eek: - it would normally say 'No!'
Then I also made it ATC size so people can see what it's really like - amazing amount of work you have for that size!
I didn't know the artist - do like the colours and style!:)

I've learnt something new today - I'd never heard of Eric Ravilious but I've just looked him up and I really like his style.

I like you interpretation of the photo - the greys are really effective and I like that you included the geese too :)

Super. I'm glad it went through at that size so I could see it closeup. Brilliant work.

Topnotch work in such a small format...love the style, too!

This is so rich in greys and details that I am boggled by it's small size ! I had no real concept of the actual dimensions until it was posted at actual size. I'm not sure I have the acuity of vision to work so well, so small !
