Pencil Vs Camera - 9

© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||

NEW: Prints now available!

This is a view of the countryside in Braives, Belgium. I took the photo
and drew the sketch. (I wanted to make a very minimalist composition
on the paper to match with the simplicity of the landscape).

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera
images in progress (with a small animation and original music).

In the Countryside

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

I was in the countryside
With my pencil and eye,
The clouds above did glide
Through the morning sky

Every wish was dream true
As the breeze was swaying:
Spring grass of the new
In the moments playing

My spirit felt its love
As new thoughts were waking!
Like a cloud here far above
Swiftly flights soaring taking

I love your art and what you do. Very interesting and thoughtful while still being creative and unique. You took a simple idea that I'm sure others have tried in various ways and put your own spin on it with your interests and travels. Great job!

I love your little sketch! Are those imprints in in the grass real? 'cause they actually seem to end somewhere behind the drawing.

A very original concept mixed with marvelously rich and well taken photographs. Great work this is impossible to duplicate
