This is another digital sketch I haven’t worked on for years. Sometimes you can’t see what is wrong with it, and that was certainly the case this time. It featured a bridge that was out of proportion with the rest of the picture, and I was at my wit’s end to repair it.
Today, it occurred to me that the simplest solutions are mostly the best. I erased the bloody bridge and concentrated on sorting out the trees and the water. I think it works much better this way. Sketches are my way of learning what can be done and what can’t. Admittedly, the painting app I used was rather unsophisticated. It makes a difference when your tools are working for you instead of against you. I certainly prefer the new version.
