Yesterday’s example of an ink brush painting of a tree from one of my art journals was rustic in comparison to today’s more fine tuned and detailed image. This picture is a pencil crayon study of a poppy from a series of plants I did for a botany journal some 10 years back. (MacLeod in brackets is the name the image was published under)
These two images back to back show the diversity of style that a lot of training can bring to one’s artistic abilities.
