as a child I had to walk through a forest to get home after school, and in the winter months when it was dark the noises and shapes and shadows in the forest used to make my hair stand on end, and quicken my step, but now all I see in a forest is beauty, just about the only bonus to getting older I can think of right now........painted using a sargent brush and sharp chalk combo
very evocative, takes me back to my childhood too - great piece
"If you go down to the woods today....." although on this occasion it was the teddybears' picnic. I think I can also detect either sketch or your very special pencil effect....
you are quite right about pencil effect Cindy, I did use it during pre-paint prep, the very fact you notice these things shows how much you are learning. Well spotted!
