We had a couple weeks to work on a gridded stippling drawing. This is when you draw only using dots. For this I drew a cherry blossom. I have always loved nature and been inspired by it. I was thinking of things in nature to draw and I thought back to St.louis where I used to live. In St.louis there is a park my the zoo that is full of cherry blossoms. This is one of my favorite plants in the world because of the colors and the internet design of each pedal and each flower. This project tought me how to be patient when drawing. This was a ver time cousimg project becuse you are doing one dot after the next dot. Overall this was a very fun project and this has made be want to do more of these in my free time.
This week I went on a hike to go and be outside and look and the mountains and possible take a picture of them and try and draw them. I went on this hike with Leit, Lucy, Maya and my two dogs Woody and Wanda. We hiked up Animas mountain. Leit brought his camera because he needed to take pictures for photography and too some pictures of the mountains and of my dogs. The pictures of the mountains make me want to draw them. I dont know If I will but I kinda want to.
This week I made a cake and decided to draw something on it with icing. Since easter was coming up I drew a bunny with some eggs around it. Its not very good but this is the first time I've drawn something since school got out for spring break so I feel like I did a ok job.
This week I went on some more hikes to try and find something that I want to draw. I want to draw some landscapes but landscapes are hard depending on what they look like. I wanted to draw the mountains from week 1 but think there is too much white for it to come out the way I want to. I need to find a new landscape with less snow and more grass or dirt.
