The Creek

This is a drawing I did of the creek at Forest Home.
A friend asked me to draw it for her before she moved away, and I was happy to oblige. Forest Home is a beautiful place that means a lot to her, and to me, and a lot of people, and it was cool to try to capture that with a pencil and paper. I drew it by hand and then colored it in photoshop (I finally figured out a technique for coloring sketches in photoshop that I like to use) and it ends up creating a separate color layer that can be pulled apart from the line drawing if needed. At the end of it all, I think it's kind of cool to look at them both individually:


  1. AMAZING! You did such a good job - she must have been thrilled when she saw it!!! From the one who heard you stressing about this project....
