Pencil Vs Camera - 54

A quick and simple improvisation I made a few days ago in the
countryside. I just felt like climbing on some giant cloud and forget
everything. Where is Heaven located? Higher always higher!!!!!!!!

This rather messy sketch is, in some way, related to that other one.

The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX11, provided

Stairway To The Sky

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

stairway stairway
to the sky
way above me
floating by
clouds like candy
cotton white
fluffy, dandy
silky, bright
how's the view
from way up high
stairway, stairway
in the sky
the view from here
will make you cry

While there are currently quite a few methods of placing "picture in picture" this is a fantastic take on it.

I love that you are aligning the sketch you draw within the image of the background, while adding a level of fantasy with what you draw.

This is perfect, there is a gorgeous dollop of cloud in the blue sky with the windswept field, and then with your sketch, you take your viewers on a journey of what if... what if we could climb to the clouds and rest in their fluffy goodness.

I'm sure we have all wanted to do that at sometime in our lives, and now more so because of your pencil vs camera. If only reality could be so sweet.

Great piece, with a journey for the viewer to take. Well done

I like your work. May I include some of the Pencil vs Camera images in a lecture? I teach art history to high school students. Your work reminds me of a variation on Jerry Uelsmann.

I have a question. when you do this, do you first take the picture, then take a picture of you with the drawing and make the background transparent and stick it on the other one? I've been wondering how you do it for quite some time, and I just now came with the conclusion :la:.

This reminds me of when I was really young and went on an air plane and was sad that heaven wasn't above the clouds. It was a sad day XD
