run

this is myrtle hill cemetery, where i walk almost daily (or try to, sometimes it's easy to let the fun stuff fall away while you do more work!); i used to be a runner, but my lower back couldn't take it, but if i were still, i'd definately run in this cemetery, too.

this is prismacolor on cardstock; i am going to be using them more often because i love them, but am not terribly proficient with them (i'm going for a painterly, fauve-like image). that said, any tips/constructive comments would be appreciated! and be honest, the road looks like a river, doesn't it? i can take it.....

no, the road looks like a road! The first thing I noticed was the charming gate and the way the trees were moving and i loved it instantly! I love using primacolor pencils and I try to mimic my paintings with them and I really enjoy playing with them.

I like it! The road is fine. I like to walk in the cemetary, too.

Those gates remind me of "Edward Sissorshands". I love your illustration, it is very moody.
