On Landscapes…

Some people love landscapes.  They love to view them, paint them, study them…  I am not one of those people.  When I look at a landscape, I am looking at technique.  I look at color usage, composition, the people or lack thereof.  Last night’s EDM challenge, draw a landscape, was not something I would have considered on my own.  One of the largest benefits from these challenges, besides the encouragement to Art everyday, is the push to step outside what you would normally do.  I would never have thought to draw my cheeseburger in challenge 12, or the view from my bike in 55, or even the doorknob in 56.  It forces you to see things all around you as special and worth “arting.”
