A New Course

….second course for the year

When I heard that Carla Sonheim was bringing Lendon Noe back to do another course I just knew I had to do it. It’s a mixture of collage and abstract and using my personal space as inspiration. The course is called Inspired by Place. Check it out. You can sign up anytime.

The first lesson was a warm up. We had to draw different size squares and rectangles and then create different landscapes using only a horizon line and alternating the foreground, middle ground and background with different shades of black, white and grey tones. The grey tones come out in the papers with the text.

Then we had to take photos or find photos of a place that has special meaning for us. Most of the photos I collected were of the house and the park at the end of the street and of the cottage and the beach. Using one of these photos as inspiration we had to create an abstract landscape using some of the techniques we used above. I chose the view of the city that I see every day when I walk to the park.

Carrot Horns

….that was my interpretation and not Winnie’s

Monster Monday is back. It looks like that sweet Sunday Rabbit  was nibbling on this monster’s horns.0f6f6369-4f5b-49d3-a07e-ff9f7352f0fe

Winnie hasn’t seen today’s drawing. I’ll come back tomorrow with her comment if she makes one.
