charcoal on print of beat up wood. Post processed ps.
Please enlarge for best detail.
I had seen this plywood base under the bench where I like to sit beneath a tree outside. I was struck by the grain pattern and unusual color of the wood. So I photographed it and put it in my textures file. I printed it out (blew out a bit of the vibrancy) and just drew a quick sketch in charcoal (black + a little white) over it. Photoshop: filter > brush strokes > accented. then render > lens flare.
Regarding concept: It’s about entering an altered state of mind. The wood is so beat up and represents weathering internally.
