A small potential difference:
Stitching bits of photos into the canvas!
Also I have re-discovered the process of drawing with a ruling pen and ink. Add a little brushwork, and we come to this:
Not sure about the tree bit at the top here... trying to continue the tree branches in the photo, but I think it is screwing up the depth perception. Maybe need to just knock it back a bit, lessen the contrast of tree branches against sky - or maybe lose the trees altogether, white out. Well, I will let it sit for a bit before making irrevocable decisions.
Meanwhile: isn't this fun, though? I'm feeling pretty excited about the photo bits and loving the process of drawing again.
