This is another of my small pieces made for Skyeworks charity exhibition 'Home to the Hills'
Often my inspiration comes from photographs, as although I do love drawing outside the weather often conspires against me, and to be honest it gets a wee bit chilly at this time of year! I took this photograph earlier in the year and I love the contrast between rock and foliage.
to begin with I began creating the collage using the land, sea and sky in a similar format to the photo
But I decided the sea was detracting from the composition.
So sea became land.... the flowers are very textured. I used crackle medium on the petals.
And the rock is a piece of citrasolv paper..
As a final touch the little croft was added on the horizon.
