Autumn Pastorale

All these lovely landscape scenes are nicer in memory than they were in real life. Except maybe this one. I could not be "realistic" enough to depict the brilliant trees, blue-purple hills, and cloud-adorned skies of eastern Pennsylvania in the fall. So this memory sketch is stylized and not "real." I sometimes wonder whether my art is "realistic" enough. The objective of the "realism" game is to make your art look as "accurately represented" as possible without the use of any photography. But hey, if I had had a passenger in my car as I drove up those roads, I'd have her snapping all sorts of pix full of picturesque everything.

"ArtStudio" on iPad, from memory, October 13, 2015.
