NEW: Prints now available!

This is a view of the countryside in Braives, Belgium. I took the photo
and drew the sketch. (I wanted to make a very minimalist composition
on the paper to match with the simplicity of the landscape).

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera
images in progress (with a small animation and original music).

In the Countryside

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

I was in the countryside
With my pencil and eye,
The clouds above did glide
Through the morning sky

Every wish was dream true
As the breeze was swaying:
Spring grass of the new
In the moments playing

My spirit felt its love
As new thoughts were waking!
Like a cloud here far above
Swiftly flights soaring taking

I love your art and what you do. Very interesting and thoughtful while still being creative and unique. You took a simple idea that I'm sure others have tried in various ways and put your own spin on it with your interests and travels. Great job!

I love your little sketch! Are those imprints in in the grass real? 'cause they actually seem to end somewhere behind the drawing.

I love the simplicity of this picture. I myself live on a farm and I think your representation is right on the money. When the farmer is out there in his field the rest of the world just drifts away. Nothing else matters but the farmer and the land.
