Walk One Hundred and Sixty-Seven – Jersey Farm Woodland tree

branch
A quickie as I charged back and forth to and from nurseries. This is one of those pictures that has been enhanced by the whole process of scanning and careful framing. It looked so inadequate and forlorn in my sketchbook I nearly didn’t post it but as there was no time to do anything else, I had no choice.

"enhanced by the careful scanning and framing" :) This gave me a good laugh - it's's rather sweet, with a wind-blown, slightly soggy nature to it.

Julie I love your farmers market second drawing and this new one, well all I can do is crop and enhance the colours a bit! Thank you for your comments, and you probably dont know how much I love seeing your stuff, gives me inspiration to go on.

It's interesting how the scanner can improve things. This looks really interesting with beautiful colors. Sometimes when I see the scanned version I realize what needs to be done to improve the painting and go back and make the painting match the scan. Usually for me it involves strengthening the value contrasts.

As a graphic designer I must admit I'm a bit of a whizz on the old scanner. The number of truly awful originals (usually mugshots) that I'm supplied with for company brochures etc means that I have to know how to get the best out of a rubbish original.
