Elements of Art

I mentioned a while back that I am taking a monthly class from Lyric Kinard on the Elements of Art.  So far, we have covered texture and space.  Between classes, I work on drawing and applying the element of the month.  Last week, I worked on drawing a still life using a frame around it to help me with the spacial relationships between the pieces of the still life.  Here is a picture of that process.  I’m going to draw another still life today, just for practice. Hint:  Lyric still has room in her Thermofax Class.  Come join our Elements class in her home studio!

My proportions are not quite right, but the practice gives me confidence.
