From field sketch to studio painting, here is a scene I quickly sketched while at the Cumberland Falls last summer. As I was standing along the rock fence overlooking the river below the falls, the sun was popping in and out from behind the clouds backlighting the trees. While sketching the scene, a man that I saw fishing at the base of the falls drifted along the edge of the river into my view. I quickly sketched him in.
As the new year started, I have been working on ink sketches to use for paintings later on. Since beginning to work with acrylic ink early last year, I have been loving!! this medium. Every time I do a new technique, I burst with excitement and smile. It is a feeling of being 'home'.
