ARTescape Part 3.


When we paint or draw, we usually focus on a single subject. What happens when there are 3 ‘obvious’ subjects in your composition?

Last week Elke took up the challenge to draw 3 leaves with Prismacolor pencils on pastel board, with pleasing results.

Although quite symmetrical, the detail and colour intensity of each leaf has resulted in a ‘close-near-far’ composition.

I see the middle leaf as the most dominant, the left one is next, followed by a much ‘quieter’ third.

This drawing is intense, sensitive  and required much labour, but the results are very pleasing to the eye.

Tomorrow I wish to share with you some digital images that I created following a visit to Flying Fish Point last Tuesday afternoon. The light wasn’t the greatest, but it did not prevent me from taking some interesting photos, two of which really excited me.

Monday: Jan’s major artwork is a real treat.
