Finding a leaf for artists is nearly like finding gold.
Every day items that normally are unnoticed and trodden underfoot, can become ‘art objects.’
Finding the leaf as I was about to step on it, I picked it up.
The speckles and spots reminded me of my quail eggs. So I kept it for my break.
I dashed off the quick sketch while taking a break in between classes, in about 15 minutes.
Art need not take hours, to “count.” To be “worthy.”
Quick sketches and color studies can often express far more in a short space of time. In those shorter spaces of time one can be more open and in tune with the subject itself.
