Our table was set with beautiful sunflowers. We talked about
its shape. The stem is long and skinny and green. The blossom is
yellow and shaped like a circle. The middle is brown and also a circle. But,
if we look closer, the petals are a triangular shape and there are
many of them. The artists were encouraged to look for more detail.
One artist sketched his whole drawing in black. He left a small corner to
paint yellow. Should I correct that? I don't. It is his vision and he
has control of it. They were all so delightful. Drawing from life takes
patience and practice. What a nice skill for them to have . We will
continue to draw from life through the end of the year.
