Day 21 - A Drawing a Day

Drawing On the Masters
An individual's ability to draw is... the ability to shift to a different-from-ordinary way of processing visual information – to shift from verbal,
analytic processing to spatial, global processing.
Betty Edwards

Gate latch on Orient Land Trust, pen, by Jan Boyd Haring. This neat drawing uses gray scale and one color, a rusty brown. What a perfect choice to present old metal around a gate. Small vignettes are a charming way to peek into the details of life.

How About: Find some nooks and crannies in your house or garden, select a format and draw your borders, and draw your own vignette. 

Great drawing and sketching in this book, with chapters addressing materials,  perspective, and other techniques critical to informed drawing.
