Drawing and Design
Had a great day yesterday in my drawing class. Discovered the artist Jim Dine, in particular his drawings. His style is quite dark at times, detailed and yet ghosted and minimal in the same drawing. I'm definitely going to try and emulate his style in the 'Dramatizing the Object' project. Will need a bit of practice though. Made a few attempts in class but have a long way to go. It's great to be inspired tho!
We got to experiment with charcoal and ink washes and next week we're going to do collage and photo montage. One of Jim Dine's drawings was created over a photograph. This is one of the approaches I'm going to explore.
Discovered I was in another treasury as well. This treasury was over in Treasury West. It's nice to be noticed and included in these. I'm the one with the sunflower.
