• Plant Gesture

    Draw what the plants are doing, not what they look like.

    Choose several (at least 3) types of plants which have distinctly different structural and physical characteristics.   

    Make some notes and observations about how the plants grow (shoots up vertically, grows out laterally, curves out from a central point, droops under its own weight, seems to hover)

    Create a series (minimum of 5) of quick gesture drawings in your sketchbook (same process you would use for the figure) of living plants (not photos).

    After spending some time with the various options, choose one to create in a larger, more complete format. 

    Size: 18in by 24 in. 
    Media:  Choose one which will allow you to move quickly and be expressionistic charcoal, pastel, paint etc.
