drawing: barn in Vermont

Still working out the Huion tablet pluses and minuses. Overall it is a great tool and I think this is one of my best drawings in awhile. There is a bug where I have to adjust the parameters at the start of the day of the pen gets stuck in the upper left corner of the screen, which is annoying. Still have to do some colour work and see how that goes.

This was the family barn of a really nice guy, Wade, who gave me a ride to my destination when my Garmin GPS took me hours off course on a really hot day. I took a bunch of reference photos and never got around to doing a drawing until now. I wanted to do the clouds with line work as well, but that looked terrible so back to the old grey scale techniques. To get the natural look I wanted, I went trough my extensive collection of cloud photos and made a little composite to get something that worked with the ink drawing.

It's lovely. Very complete. I think you're going to be just fine with the new hardware. It's like you never lost a thing.

Thanks Mike, there are small issues but it's not like I didn't have issues with the Wacom as well. I am working on a colour acrobat drawing...something that I have been doing more and more poorly as time goes on in my opinion. I was able to get a section done yesterday and it I think I have my mojo back for how to get the results I want again. It's early yet to say that for sure though!
