This was drawn for a friend of her boys and father-in-law walking in the woods. She took the picture this is based on and I really loved it, so, as is par the course for me, I wanted to draw it. That's funny when I think about it, any picture I really like I want to draw it. I thought this style, lines and washes of color was fitting to the scene. Nature makes me feel alive and reminds me of all that is good about being alive; so, a labored process just didn't seem the way to approach drawing this sort of an image.
Cristina, you're awesome! Thanks for letting me draw your picture.
