Ruth Point

Watercolor sketch in Aquabee Super Deluxe Sketch Book, 6" x 9" (15.2 x 22.9 cm). This sketch, named "Ruth Point" is a made-up scene. Not from memory, but made up. I'd be interested in comments from other artists if they do "made-up" works like this. Other comments welcome too.

Neat! It looks for all the world like a sketch made of a real place. I have not really tried my hand at drawing from the imagination all that much. Still struggling too much to draw any real things. ;-)

I have tried a few imaginative locations this year, they are fun!

lovely! it may not be drawn from imagination, it could always have been dragged out of your long term memory. perhaps? it's amazing what has been filed away there. Great post and I've enjoyed reading the responses on the EDM board.

When I was a teenager I worked from imagination all the time, now I work on the spot or from photos. I like this painting, and I suspect that it probably is good for your brain to work this way, at least sometimes.

Fantastic! Very believable too. I very much like your style and the looseness of your work.

I think this one is really convincing, in spite of being 'made up' :) Beautiful painting!

Nice work, Steve! Looks great! I used to do imagination scenes when I was a lot younger, but mostly I work from photos and on site. I think working from imagination gives a freedom that you don't find with reference drawing. At least for me, anyway.
