No, I haven't regressed since my last post in late June....it may appear so from this study, but it's actually a study done (or an attempt at) using no more than 10 shapes and 50 strokes or fewer. That's it. Simplifies things, doesn't it? No fussing, no decorating, just simple shapes and values. This was my first try at this type of thing, and I am positive I could have done a better job. I'm planning to do many of these--to retrain myself to see simply and take care with each stroke. Liz Wiltzen gets the credit for inspiring me to do this--her post on the topic was back on August 16.
Tomorrow I'll post my own version of the same scene in a value study done in a dark neutral and using a paper towel:)
And last, I've spent the last few weeks reformatting my blog and overhauling my website...the website transition is not quite complete--I'll let you know when it's finalized, but the blog is finished....for now. Let me know what you think!
