Trying to break my long drawing and painting hiatus that I've had during the last couple of years. Most of my recent "hobby time" has gone into programming or related things as it's something I enjoy a lot.
As I've been thinking about how to improve Places, I've started to get a feeling that the it's really my artistic abilities, rather than technical, that I'm mostly bumping against. I'm not saying that the tech behind places is anything to write home about, it's nothing but the very basic and there's much to improve there too. But at least initially that was sort of the point; have extremely simple tech and use art to work around it. So, I'm taking steps towards that direction again.
Below are some thumbnail sketches I did today while outside. Looking at these now, I should try to simplify and focus more.
