pine valley (own work, 2007, 21 x 30 cm, click on the image for an enlargement)
pine valley (detail 6.7 x 9 cm, click on the image for an enlargement)
one reason for adding the detail: it might give an inkling how many lines this one drawing took to complete. i find it interesting to note that this level of detailing inevitably leads to image files which are significantly harder to compress than average photgraphs. in the case of this drawing, the compressed .jpeg file is about 10 times as large as when compressing a normal photograph...showing how much information is packed in such a drawing.
oh, and i should add that the file (around 1.2 Mb) still doesn't do the real drawing much justice.
