Dedicated to archery by patjila


Available to buy on…

Started with drawing a sketch of a kneeling longbow archer.
Scanned the raw sketch some time ago, left it as it was, picked it up again and altered it in Photoshop Illustrator into a silhouette.

Used one of my own photographs as a background, applied a filter
used Faststone adding a frame and combined it all together in Photoshop CS5. After that I lost track….several layers and try outs, couldn’t find my file, started over….
At last I ended up with: Mark! Draw! Loose! a try to hit the butt (ons)…..

Equipment: graphite pencil, mouse, pc, own photograph as background.

    Aw it’s simply beautiful Annet. I adore those pinks you use in your work.
    Such a romantic feel to this image, bright yet soft background but the silhouette gives the impression of night-time to me – keeping with the romance i feel in the air.
    Hope that makes sense to you.
    It’s a FAV for me Annet and something for me to aspire to.
    Love Colleen2012

  • Yess It makes sense Colleen, when I am using my bow practising then there is that feeling too…somehow it’s that feeling being one with nature….:)) thank you lots for your fine compliment!
