A pencil drawing developed further in Photoshop. When the Morris dancers are in action it is all about look at "us". This dancer when he plays is concentrating so hard that he is so oblivious, for a few minutes, to the world around him that he becomes out of this world.
A pencil drawing of a view that few in my village will have seen. I lived as a child in a large house with good views over the Cherwell valley. I miss this high view here in Eynsham so I have married my past with the present by looking out at a real view through a fictional window.
I scanned in the pencil drawing and coloured it with in Photoshop. I really seem to have this thing about using both hot and cool colours in one picture. It is very difficult to resolve. Looking at the study I will keep the violet for outside the window but mix it into the colours within resulting in more browns.
