What a day! Unfortunately, I could not finish everything from my to do list, I just started way too late with my art stuff today. It can happen, so I don’t beat myself up over it, but I want to do better tomorrow.
I designed and built a graveyard including crypt for “Your Land” today!
Second day of working through Tyler Edlin’s environment art for beginners base exercise! I am surprised how much more in control I felt today and how much more natural my control over my forms felt. I would not have dreamt to make scenic compositions today already. If I understood Mr Edlin’s youtube video correctly, scenic stuff is material for week 4, while I should spend my first week just freely exploring the basic geometry. I do this. And I just give in, when I have an idea. I really really like the gains. Theoretical composition knowledge must have been there all along, but only now I am developing the fundie-vessels to literally give it form.
Another big surprise today – apparently I (clearly) prefer cubes and cylinders over spheres. If style is defined by lines, shape and form, I guess this says something about my style. But I don’t know what. So I’ll just draw on and won’t be tempted to slack on spheres.
