This image was created in the Procreate App on my iPad, using an Apple Pencil.

The inspiration for the piece came from a few sources:

  1. Art Works is going to have a show featuring the human figure. I am a charter member of the Figure Drawing co-op at Art Works and I absolutely love life drawing! So, I wanted to create an oil painting that I could enter in the show. This is a digital sketch to think through the oil painting.
  2. I love trees and nature. You can see a lot of trees in my sketchbook.
  3. I love fantasy art and don’t get to do a lot of it.
  4. In all honesty, given my public position as a pastor, and given the controversial nature of figure drawing and the display of nude figures, I don’t feel comfortable sharing my life drawings publicly. This image was a nice half-way ground.
  5. In a world of chaos and ugliness, we just need some beauty to inspire us.

Watch this video to learn how you can get this image–and many more–printed on just about anything.

Enjoy!
