The Oak in Shawshank #Sketch

Today's #sketch 'The Oak in Shawshank' is by Art Director Stephen O'Connor!

Stephen: This piece is a speed-painting that took two and a half hours to complete – it’s a Photoshop sketch of the oak tree in the movie Shawshank Redemption.

I love that scene and the atmosphere in the movie and wanted to try capture some of that atmosphere…

Sound is something that you can’t capture in a painting but keeping it loose and fast I was hoping to get a sense of movement on the leaves; it’s not a windy day but more of a dry hot day with a light breeze. I hope it has some of that in there…
