It was exciting to put out two months of squares and see the variety of techniques, materials, subjects and color/values. I have found it challenging to keep coming up with new images and then decided I do not have to. Revisiting a composition and changing some element involves experimenting. The landscape subjects are especially good to look at again, weather and seasons change the details. SNOW brings out high contrast and changes shapes along with visual focus.
Not surprising, the December squares are filled with white and neutrals. Color still abounds, but like spring in the Arizona Desert you need to look closely. Bluebirds flitting, holly berries, sky blue, the warmth of our wooden buildings are all examples represented this month. Enjoy a sampling including some subjects photographed but sketched from memory. First a blank slate staring at me on January first:
What an inspiring challenge! The variety of images and colors you have hooked really shows how simple images can provide a nice focal point for hooking. Thanks for sharing!
The next step is to look at the shapes in nature and create pattern. Some larger compositions are in the works.
This is fabulous, Susan. I love how you are always challenging yourself. You inspire me so.
Your posts are always so interesting!
