This is the pastel I did yesterday morning. The light haze rising from the water was so compelling. I sit now in Starbucks waiting to see what this morning's light will reveal.
While I wait, here are more tidbits from Sadie's wonderful workshop... Enjoy!
Put aside your verbal knowledge of nature. Visualize and remember these most important notes from Sadie.
The nature of organic form, whether the human arm or a sycamore tree, follow these tenets:*It is always tapered, never parallel.
*It is always convex or pushing out, never concave. Even when something looks concave it is really made up of a series of convexities.
*Everything spirals-trees and arms included. It spirals in both directions although one direction is more prominent.
*Everything is interlocking.
