Movement in a Winters Landscape
Digital sketchbook work
Nigel Borrington 2020

This evenings digital sketches.

I am working away to try to capture the movement that crows make in our winter landscapes.

I have ink and acrylic sketches in my project sketchbook but this images was created this evening, using a digital graphics tablet and an application (MYPAINT). The idea is that once I have worked for long enough on getting am impression on movement into my visual memory I can start to express this in larger and longer worked acrylic paintings on canvas.

The thing I am learning the most from this project is that, the ways I can express movement will largely rely on the way each type of art medium can best be used to do so, i.e. ink and watercolour will express movement in a different way than acrylic paint will.

The main thing is its all adding up to being great fun and a very pro-active method of enjoying many different artist materials 🙂

  2. The trees and the old fence are solid, well defined, but the crow is so full of energy! The combination works so well.
