…so this week is ‘Masters of Motif’ week at art camp…looks I will focus on Klimt, which is awesome because it is a great warm-up for me each day to come home and work on my tree(s). And I am working half days...so that is great because I have more time, more daylight, to draw. Looks like it will be a good week.
I took some pictures today showing the large group project; the kids will be filling in the swirly tree with different patterns and designs and then adding embellishments. I was fortunate to find a REALLY BIG piece of paper to do the drawing on…good find. Will post the final picture later in the week.
When I came home today I started working on the next tree, number seventeen. Still working with the ‘macaroni hair’ and figurative elements. Two ladies showed up in this drawing. After looking at it, I see where it could be viewed as two images of the same figure. I keep thinking about how trees and natural forms are so easy to intertwine with the female form. The lines, the shapes…they just go together for me. Not sure if this will be the only tree for today or if I will come back to the table tonight and draw some more…
