That treePosted: September 13, 2014
There’s a big old tree I’ve been looking at for years. It’s in the woods near my house and I see it when I walk my dog. Needless to say, I don’t bring my sketch stuff with me on dog walks but I do have my phone and I occasionally snap photos of things I see that might be interesting to paint later on. Painting from a phone shot is kind of cool because it’s as if you’re just catching glimpses of something. You draw a bit and the phone turns off. You paint a bit and the phone turns off. I know I could change the phone settings but that wouldn’t be nearly as much fun as this.
