Piece description from the artist
This is a journey of a drawing between traditional and digital mediums.
I started with a pencil and paper sketch. I scanned the sketch and created the initial collage in Photoshop.
Then I printed it and made the oil painting on wood based on this collage.
I transferred the oil painting back to computer and finished it off in Photoshop.
