Putting perspective to work as a tool for telling a story will continue to be my focus today.
It is a rainy morning and we gathered in my brother’s cabin, glad to be in a warm space together. I was able to carefully plan and draw this sketch, taking time to get the proportions and the lighting right. I drew in pencil and am still undecided about inking over the sketch. Parts may benefit from the clarity of lines but I am pleased that I caught as much of the form as I did without the support of inked lines. The forest through the window looks more like a backyard with a fence, but I am pleased I was able to use the head of the figure as a scale for placing the different trees into the scene in a way that corresponds to the actual view through the cabin window.
