#FourMoreDays to #BREAK

#20 “Clear sight makes clear art.” Observation lies at the heart of the art process. Whether your art derives from mimicking nature or extrapolating a mental construct, your powers of observation are critical. Unless you can see what lies before you, you cannot describe it. Train yourself to eliminate preconceptions and received understandings when observing anything. Try to see what is before you, not what you think you see or want to see.  Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School\

Try to judge it as an image, not as a mirror. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School.

  • 2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.
  • What is it about the figure that you are still uncertain about? If you have to go back and change something about your current state of the figure, what are you needing to rework? These Drawings are ALL ABOUT LOOKING and I expect you to be working and FOCUSED 100% of the time.

Reflection: What aspect of the drawing do you find successful? What was it that made the second part of the drawing – the part of the drawing that may have surprised you – angered you? Why?
