Cool sketch, with quite a lot happening there! Do you plan to colour it at some point?
Wernicke,Wernicke said:Ah... The way you've painted it, the seemingly loose wet brushes across the canvas gives off a very dreamy effect, totally immersive, as if it's trying to draw me into the picture. I could stare at this painting for ages, sink into it, imagining walking around the spring forest myself, finding out just who that woman and her sheep are.
The blur in this picture is deffinitely a strength - heavily enforces the dreamy effect mentioned earlier for me. Also, the lighting. The contrast between the shadow and the field bathed in sunlight is superb. It's also quite startling how much a sparse amount of white, yellow (flowers) and green (moss) dots can do for detail within the, indeed, VERY detailed vegetation. Drawing those lines across the surface of the trees is such a creative alternative to spending hours detailing every tiny tidbit of the bark, which wouldn't have contributed to the effect the picture is (in my opinion) trying to convey at all.
I'm not even going to ask how you managed to make the water appear so fluid, so reflective, so real. It's nothing short of amazing.
My Skvor-darling, I'll never tire of your ever improving work.
Keep drawing sheep and vikings with sad backstories, please.
I need this.
