brush strokes | SIS I '14

Mina wields her brush with super hero power. Or it would seem. This summer brought with it a more thoughtful process  Too much red? quite possibly - a carry over from her previous work. Yet now within a blur of more muted brush strokes and newly mixed color, Mina begins to delve beneath the surface, and negative space is cast as a placid foil to her gravity-defying jabs of boldness.

sketching l drawing s'14

As we come to the end of a semester, let the sketchbook be your laboratory - a place of great brilliance and great failings. Mediocrity is when there is no deviation from one page to the next. Whether doodling, furthering ideas, or continuing class assignments, enjoy the process.

perspective sketching | drawing s'14

To sketch the interior of a church can be both overwhelming and intoxicating. Settle into a pew, and stay focused. Highlight something, but don't obsess. Set a time limit (this is not your eternal resting place), and omit 90 percent of all its majestic details. Simplicity is the order of the day.
