About 2 months ago I started illustrating a well known 85km tourist route in the area I live in. I just wanted to post on the art forum to see if anyone had anything to comment on with the 4 I’ve attached. I do them on location to a point where I can bring it back home and refine things a bit. I’ll spend anywhere from 3-4 hours outside and another 1-3 hours touching them up. I keep the supplies to a bare minimum using only HB pencils and Gummi erasers/hard erasers, just don’t want to be lugging around a lot of things since I’m mostly walking (and later when I have to go much farther I’ll be taking public transport/cycling). I’ve only done around 10 illustrations so far, the weather here has been just a buzzkill for this as it’s been raining so much. Anyways. Hope you guys like them and thanks for taking the time to look. .
These look wonderful! You’ve really captured a sense of being there rather than just ‘pictures.’ Looking forward to seeing more :)
These are looking pretty! I especially love the "flow" feeling in the first three, maybe the forth is a bit less of that but still nice! And you can draw on-location! wow! I never feel comfortable doing drawings outside. I like your "minimal" approach, this way the image will not look that "adjusted", and appears to be more natural.
