Friday Inspiration {No. 19}

{my growing acorn collection}

I have been thinking about drawing this week, and the various methods and styles people use to capture the world through line and mass. Here are some of the blog posts I have visited to get some thoughts moving...

} Nina Johansson's People in Airports - I love the way she creates a boarder around her sketches

} Ester Wilson's Blankets - Her ability create depth and folds through hatching is wonderful

} Via Algarviana, Dia 5 (2) - the use of gestural and cross contour lines that form the tree is simple and captivating to me

} Kevin Wueste's Three Chalk Drawings - the tonal qualities of the drawing are beautiful

} Geninne's Cosmos are wonderfully simple and graphic

} I like the thick lines and use of color in these sketchbook entries

Love your acorn collection. The other day I was wanting to paint some, and went looking, and every single one I could find apparently had been a squirrel snack. I returned without any. :)

I have been collecting these acorns to draw or paint, but so far I just like taking photos of them :)

Sorry to hear that the squirrels have been so busy, I have noticed lately that only the hulls of the acorns can be found.
