A few months ago I wrote a post about some artwork I did inspired by a book: Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises to Make Drawing Fun, by Carla Sonheim. (Look here for that post.) I’ve done some recent work inspired by the same subject – the cracks in the sidewalks under my feet. Now I’m doing a small series of posts to show you the results. Search this blog under the term “sidewalk art” to find earlier posts in the series.
This is the last post of the current series. There will be more drawings like these, I assure you. It’s a lot of fun to do this kind of work.
My method is to take one photo and rotate it through a circle – that way I can do four drawings from one photo. Here is the source photo for the drawings done on 9/11/19:
and here are the drawings.
Thank you. !
I like your method of rotating it in a circle! ❤️ So fun to see what you see! 😃 By the way, I see a bird in your photo…Lol! 🐦✨
Thank you! And…photo some sidewalks and start drawing! Birds fly out, people speak, and mountain ranges come into view. It is lots of fun.
I like that partridge in a pear tree.
Thank you. I am feeling that when I start in on sidewalk crack pictures, I am entering a fairy tale world. I like your characterization of this bird – I remember learning this song when I was young and being thrilled when I could go through the whole thing.
