Newest drawing complete. It’s back to portraits and figures for me. This is my friend Carole, I took several great photos of her, I hope to capture her light and her peace with herself. Stay tuned…..
Starting a new large commission, back to a full size watercolor sheet! River rocks peeking through running water. No figures or hands in this one for a change 😄.
This is similar to my earlier piece, Loyalsock Creek, and as as matter of fact it is the same creek, just a close up, select view. I hope to really play and loosen up with the paint on this one, it should be really fun to do….
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 🙂
