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.
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 1/20/20:
and here are the drawings.
I love the whimsy of these. (K)
Thank you. It’s such a escapist kind of drawing. You can see pretty much anything in an arrangement of sidewalk cracks, and anything you do will be just right. Plus I enjoy the carefulness needed with a drawing pen such as I have been using.
Fabulous as always. I especially love that peculiar little figure in the top right illustration.
Thank you. I like that one too. Sort of sneaks up on you.
