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.
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.
So lucky to find this gem; a sketchbook handed to me by a wonderful antique store owner this past Spring in southern France. It is dated 1912 and I can not quite make out the signature.
An amazing record of time and place, for sure. A souvenir I will hold deep in my heart.
Keep those sketchbooks filled with all the ‘evidence’ you can muster, each and everyday.
‘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.
I was there and I remember.
