Wk. 14 – Art Experience – Sketching in the Garden

I had lots of fun with this week’s art experience! Not only did I enjoy expressing my artistic side (yet again) through photography, but was also able to relax as I take in the beautiful scenery.  One of the things I enjoy in life is taking photos because, much like in film (my passion), there’s a meaning behind every shot.  That’s why I decided to come to the garden a bit early and began sketching so that I can spend the rest of the class taking pictures.  I’m no sketch artist but I feel as though I did a pretty decent job at capturing the scenery around me.  As instructed, I shied away from using an eraser, and although it was somewhat hard to break that habit, I eventually learned to embrace my sketching flaws and simply draw.

I didn’t name the abstract drawings to leave the viewers guessing.
