Day 164

Landscapes/scenery will be this month's study. I really want to explore the organic and unforced aspects of form and shape. I also think that I won't fall short of ideas. This concentration of scenery came as an inspiration to me from another artist's words. It was on the topic of still life and how he would sit outside and draw what he saw. I've always thought it was pretty cool whenever I've seen an artist with their easel outside painting or drawing or what not. So I plan on doing a little more of that. This month will hopefully be less rendition of photography and more drawing of the real world, the landscape that is. Today's drawing, however, is from a photograph. I pulled in as much of the dark areas as possible and faded into the light to create a true contrast of the two.
