Description An impromptu painting done as a study for rendering pine trees.For me, impromptu studies usually start out with no particular idea or vision of what I'll end up with. In this case I wanted to practice a couple of wash techniques and study pine tree rendering. This study turned out to be decent finished painting.
Steve Mitchell Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement I am a freelance illustrator, and graphic designer in the Upstate South Carolina area with over 26 years experience in the marketing, advertising, and publishing fields. Before I ever became an illustrator, I was originally trained as a fine artist and by far my favorite art pursuit has always been painting. I particularly enjoy water media and pencil. I am also very fond of artistic photography. I'm pleased to share some of my work with you here.
Any abilities I have are gifts from God and I believe they should be shared. I am thankful for the light, color and bountiful beauty God created to inspire me and for Christ who gave everything for me. Without Him I have nothing.
