This post documents the initial stages of capturing my landscape studies.
It takes very few lines to remind myself just what attracted me to the focal point of my landscape. They may look like random scribbles but for me they contain a succinct reminder of the contours of the land, texture of trees and bushes, and horizon line.
The images below are cropped and their contrast and colours accentuated. These sit side by side the quick sketches, referencing colour and texture.
Below are the working drawings. I didn’t use the photos for reference preferring the freedom and spontaneity of the sketches.
