Day 27 - A Drawing a Day

Drawing On the Masters

A work of art goes through many phases of development, but in each phase it is always a work of art. (Therein lies the importance of sketches.) A work of art is finished, from the point of view of the artist,
when feeling and perception have resulted in a spiritual synthesis.

Roses, mixed media, Marj Leggitt. Great study sheet of roses, analyzing form, thinking about composition, noting details, and indicating colors.

How About: Trying this exact exercise yourself. You'll want graphite, watercolor or colored ink (brush tipped disposable pens are great too), and a bit of time to plan things out in your sketchbook.
