I really like this round composition!I have a tiny plastic specimen box (1''x1'') with a round magnifying lens set into the top that I often use for my drawing/painting reference. I have, at different times, filled it with tiny seashells, seeds, insects etc. and quite often I am so charmed by the round composition as seen through the lens that I draw/paint it "as is".It is fun to challenge oneself to find unique perspectives and unusual compositions in nature.well done!~gretchen
I am so excited with this! I think about trying this out with hard as well as soft edge (kind of a fade out). There are certainly more of these in my future! :-)I do have in mind trying out three point perspective of an stretched out, exaggerated sort. Love that effect! :-)
Here's a blog you might find interesting esp. as today she writes about paper and how one must constantly experiment with it and our supplies. I love Roz's blog- you should check out some of her archives as well.http://rozwoundup.typepad.com/roz_wound_up/2010/01/stonehenge-paper-a-test.html#moreenjoy!~gretchen
Hey, thanks for the blog link. Good stuff there. I'll definitely be checking out her posts.
This is super! I love close up on details and your squirrel is so sweet. I have been putting out some food for ours here. As you might know we have some very cold weather..!!
Geez, thank you Val! I am having so much fun.So glad to hear that you feed your squirrels too. On snowy Sunday I had five here feeding together. My ragged-ear friend was among them.Stay warm! I'm reading that the poor farmers are working very hard to save their crops.
