Tool Shed by Carla – shapes and complimentary color (click on image)
While collaborating on this blog project for two weeks, my grand daughter and I covered the basics of drawing:
Line, Form, Value, Space, Texture, Pattern and Color. We ended our drawing sessions with free, expressive figure drawings working with live models. Thinking about subject matter, we covered Landscape, Figurative, Still Life and Abstract Art using a variety of materials. We talked about the importance of Variation: variation in line, form or shape, value, space, texture, pattern and color. We had a great time together. For me, having a buddy to sketch with was the best!

I think I just used a trackback to send a ping back.http://starscrutiny.wordpress.com/2012/08/20/what-they-miss/ It was my grand daughter’s first trackback. Oh my, here I am teaching her how to blog by having her be a guest on my blog and she knows more about it all than I do! It does show how we are from all over the world expressing our opinions. Each time I write something, a new door opens. I read or see something interesting from another person in the world. I learn from them and hopefully, I give a few minutes of contemplation to someone else. Megan viewed the stat page of our blog from France, where she saw the map representing people who read her blog from all over the world – 98 hits one day during the first week! How great is that? Apologies for the fuzzy photograph, but this was the specific day and this was what I shot.
