This month for the master class, we are doing landscapes. Our assignment was to find or take 3 landscape photos and distill them down and change the arrangement and create 3 sketches. Above is a photo looking up at the cathedral grove of Redwoods in John Muir park in CA.
This is a photo of a stand of Aspens that I took at Black Butte Ranch in Central Oregon.
And these are Joshua Trees taken in Southern CA in Joshua Tree National Park. (I love trees.)
Here are my sketches which still need to be tweaked.
E liked all of them. She usually points me in a direction, but this time, she left if up to me to chose. Lisa and Clay think I should try the Redwood piece. The sketch is very unfinished because drawing all those branches and needles – couldn’t do that. If I do this one, I am thinking of doing the confetti technique where small pieces of fabric are captured under tulle and stitched.
Do you have an opinion? Let me know.
Lisa had a “moment” on NBC nightly news last night. She was interviewed about the coloring books she designs for adults. They posted the whole taped segment with her on their facebook page. Click here to watch.
