Happy New Year, guys! Just wanted to express my continuous gratitude for the fact that this blog and its community exists. Thanks to those who run it, for all your hard work; to those who share your pages, for the inspiration and motivation to create; and thanks for all the awesome people I wouldn’t have met if it hadn’t been for this blog! Wishing you all an inspired year of the sheep (:
This landscape is from the cover of a book of piano music and I thought it was beautiful. I’m not sure where it is but I’m guessign it’s Scotland since the music has to do with Scottish landscapes and culture.
Media used: pencil, colored pencil, ink, on Moleskine which is really the best paper for colored pencil and so many things. The cost is worth this.
I considered adding people but felt it ruined the meditative quality of this image. It invites you to get lost in the landscape. I’d like to use this for something.
