#AutismAcceptance/#AutismAppreciation doodles ‘n’ scribbles, no 17: the cabin in the woods

Coloured drawing in landscape orientation, using fine liner and marker pens, of a stylised log cabin, in a clearing, surrounded by trees. In the background is a multicoloured sky, evoking a sunset. The ground is littered with leaf debris, twigs and stones.

This one plays on my interests in horror (the haunted cabin in the woods is a common trope), spooky stuff, nature, and getting away from civilisation.

Like the ‘Edge of the Woods’ image, I have mixed feelings about the finished picture. I wasn’t always consistent in my choice of media (sometimes fineliner, sometimes felt tip, sometimes alcohol-based marker), so the blocks of colour are a bit uneven in places. And the composition of the picture for me is, well, somewhat boring. Also, I decided to crop it as there was too much floor in the finished product (I still have the paper version, if I ever change my mind).

But I like the colours, at least, and I did remember to scan in the line drawing before adding the rest of the block colour, as can be seen from the comparison, below – again, before I coloured it all in, I was a bit inconsistent with which pen I used, so the varying thicknesses of the lines tend to irk me. My kind of brain doesn’t always pay full attention to the right details (like which pen I pick up).

I’m still learning. Always learning.

Composite of two images side by side. To the right, a coloured drawing in landscape orientation, using fine liner and marker pens, of a stylised log cabin, in a clearing, surrounded by trees. In the background is a multicoloured sky, evoking a sunset. The ground is littered with leaf debris, twigs and stones. To the left, an earlier line drawing stage of the same picture.
