In this mudra, the thumb and index finger touch as if picking up a very tiny object, such as a grain of truth. This is a symbol for spiritual understanding.
Finished drawing for the next painting. This one was a bit more complicated than I originally thought it would be, but I’m satisfied with how it turned out.
The inspirations for these next few paintings are Buddhist hand mudras.
This one is the Dharmachakra mudra, symbolizing the continuous flow of energy in the cosmos. For the background, my plan is to create a spiral of stars in a dark field of color.
Class two……..We learned how to draw from life by observing carefully and measuring our object using ours pencils as a guide.
Then we learned about one point perspective :
The kids practiced by drawing squares placed above and below the horizon line, then making up our own landscape using the principles that we learned. 🙂
It was a packed but very fun class!
The first excercise in my kids’ beginner’s drawing Class at the Newark Arts Alliance….We talked about how to “see” differently. Instead of drawing what you think a flower should look like, we turned the image upside down and focused on line and shape and negative space. The kids did such a good job! And we had a lot of fun 🙂
The drawing for the next painting… I’m only doing a face this time, not a full figure. This year I want to focus on doing more pieces and working in a smaller format than I usually do. Hopefully that also translates to more frequent postings 😄.
Not sure of a title for this one yet…
Maybe just her name, Chelsea?
