Day 20 - A Drawing a Day

Drawing On the Masters
Drawing is the discipline by which I constantly discover the world.
Frederick Franck

Vietnam View, mixed media, Marj Leggitt. A Viet Nam view from Marj Leggitt's amazing trip to that fascinating country last summer. Note the use of the dragonflies, to provide "entrance" of the viewer into the image, as they provide a reference for the view.
Creating a good view/scene has some special requirements, not the least of which is inviting the viewer to step into the scene. Click HERE for some interesting notes about the composition of landscapes.
How About: Plan on taking a sketch book with some basic drawing tools in grayscale and color with you on your next trip. Bringing home sketches provides great memories with a frame!
