Sylph: Digital Sketch (2013)

This is a high-level digital sketch drawn in Adobe Photoshop (@Photoshop), using my @Wacom Cintiq Companion (@CintiqCompanion). WIP.

Update: My good friend Dan Landrum, artist and designer, brought this image to life on Google+, by pairing it with the perfect ee cummings’ poem.

Many thanks, Dan,  for elevating this image with such a rich association:

in time of daffodils (who know

the goal of living is to grow)

forgetting why, remember how


in time of lilacs who proclaim

the aim of waking is to dream,

remember so (forgetting seem)


in time of roses (who amaze

our now and here with paradise)

forgetting if, remember yes


in time of all sweet things beyond

whatever mind may comprehend,

remember seek (forgetting find)


and in a mystery to be

(when time from time shall set us free)

forgetting me, remember me

"Enchanted, ” by Terre Britton.

“Enchanted” (c)1997 – Acrylic Airbrush on Stretched Canvas, 30″ x 24″

From the archives.

Besides tests and studies, I’ve painted about six airbrush pieces. The first, Aphrodite, was an exciting accomplishment. But I didn’t spend enough time working out a technical methodology. Instead, I painted by the seat of my pants and, like this piece, the result was dark and muddied. I do, however, like its story-book, illustrative stylization.
