#beautiful#sight the #moon this is my first time actually being able to catch it before the canyon clouds roll in, our view was crystal clear. #blessed#lunareclipse#2019 Every time I catch the moon in its beautiful glory I feel like a kid all over again.
Oh my gosh, the Super Blood Wolf Moon is gorgeous! It's a perfectly clear and very cold night here in Myrtle Beach, but definitely worth going outside to view it 🌑❤️👍 Hope all the other night owls had clear skies too!
Drawing #12 The dog watching the cat. Always amazes me the reflection in eyes. In a really good photograph the reflection can show such incredible detail like a pool of water. In learning to draw I instinctively through what I saw and not what I thought a boat it was shapes colours shadows and the relationship of objects to each other that I sought to capture so I spent more time looking up and looking down at my sketchpad. Years later when I studied art they taught students how to draw by copying something upside down so they couldn’t think about what they were saying which was an exercise to strengthen their right brain in doing just that copying what they saw and not what they thought they were drying so instead of drawing a bird they would draw simply the shapes relative to each other and not with their minds told them a bird looks like. I had never heard it explained before and I guess most artists simply do it instinctively so when people talk about the gift of an artist I sometimes think it’s really just a studied ability that anyone can learn but what a real artist can do that I sometimes wonder if I can do is to create something from something else to free up their imagination and create something that they simply don’t see at all anywhere except in their brain. Completely and freely interpreting everything through a different way of perceiving. To me that is far more creative and artistic than simply copying something that you see. It is for that reason Robert Bateman was never admitted into Canada’s most noted artists because he is photo realistic in what he chooses to do as are some of the best artists in my opinion but they did not show the same creativity as for instance Lauren Harris of the group of seven. #reflections#eyesofthesoul#eyesarewindowstothesoul#dogseye#watching#sight#secondsight#thethirdeye#drawfreely#studtwhatyousee not what you think
