In the Sketchers group I presented a mini lesson on perceiving negative space,
à la Drawing On the Right Side of the Brain.
A fantastic approach for seeing & drawing!
I had observed some tree branches out of a café window
on one gray & dreary day. During the group, which took place
on another gray & dreary day,
armed with the concept of "Point of Departure",
I dropped & mixed colors into the spaces of a quick ink sketch.
Here in the Northeast, in the last days of March,
we have a limited time to observe
the beautiful interweavings that tree branches up above make.
Oh the twisted, jagged lines & beautiful shapes of sky!
Behold the layers of skeletal branches crissing & crossing!
