Translating Landscapes

A creative adventure; a new class via on-line. So great to teach landscape (design) drawing + painting and to reach out to many. Take a look at the preview + sign up.

Warmly, Anita

The landscape is a gentle way of exploring the elements that are integral to making meaningful work: line, value, color, shape, edges, composition.

In this 6-lesson class, we will use our study of landscape to work at finding our unique mark, learning and reinforcing design concepts, drawing with intent, and simplifying.

‘Gathering Evidence’ as a title for my up coming show came easy for me. Being a visitor to another country this past Fall in Italy and France was such an amazing opportunity to do just that; gather. Whether on a train, catching a taxi or sitting in a wonderful cafe, one gathers and absorbs; enjoying a keen awareness of the magic around you.

This experience is so valuable and yes, comes back ‘tenfold‘ to you in studio. Perhaps my show expresses this magic in bold ways, some subtle and personal too.

a purposeful direction: part 2

“Sure, it’s a bird theme, but much more. Again, stay tuned.”

my last words from ‘a purposeful direction.’ (a previous blog)

From these birds, images of inspiration came. Into the sketchbook; graphite scratches and a ‘road map’ as a result.

Following a lead, a theme, a direction with possibility; ingredients for good design.
