For our 3rd sketchbook assignment we were to go outside and find 4-5 leaves and conduct a series of drawings. We were to do a negative space contour, a detailed contour, a blind contour, and a shadow sketch. It was an interesting project that really opened my mind. It's amazing how many different ways you can look at a leaf, and how many different drawings you can create from it. Each drawing captures an essence of art in its own way. Over the past month, I have discovered that I really enjoy working with nature.
