Welcome to Day 28 of Drawing Into Poems, my daily drawing/seeing/writing study into poetry. You can read more about this month-long project here on my April 1 post. Feel free to read the books with me and pull out your own sketchbook and jewelry box full of metaphor too...
Day 28 - Waterless Fountain
Click to enlarge the drawing.
Students - I notice that this month, I have been pulled toward sketching many artistic objects. There is something about interpreting an object that was conceived of by another human, something different from drawing nature. I feel a connection to the person who made this fountain, this person I will never know. And I think I'm getting better at some small elements of perspective too.
This blog and The Poem Farm Facebook page will be dark from Monday, April 29 - Sunday, May 5 as I am participating in Screen Free Week. I welcome you to unplug with me!
