Description 2 herons pose in the still blue water in front of a crisp blue sky with thin wispy clouds. The composition is framed on the bottom with a patch of cattails, and at the top by meandering tree branches. It’s a whimsical illustration that combines my drawings with my photos. It’s got storybook charm and lots of clear color: cerulean, periwinkle, soft muted green, dusty brown, and chalky white.The original image is a digital collage. A black and white pen & ink drawing was scanned into Photoshop where it was manipulated with color fills, and fills created from scans of my photos, my paintings, and objects (feathers). Since the “original” image is digital, the only physical form in which it exists is as a print.
Sarah Knight, Tecumseh Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement Hello, my name is Sarah Knight. I've had a lifelong interest in art. I started drawing at the age of two and haven't stopped since. And my mother has boxes upon boxes full of my drawings as evidence... I enjoy creating things, it's just what comes naturally. I have a BFA from the School of Art & Design of the University of Michigan (my concentration was scientific illustration).
