Just a quick post today as I am busy, busy, this is last week's drawing challenge – I forgot to post it – the challenge was to draw something 'in fine detail'. I chose to detail an acathus leaf, something you'll see around a lot at the moment as it was a key motif of the Rocco styling that has come into revival over the last year or so – it is also the ornament
used in the Corinthian Order, as a decorative feature. The line work in this piece took ages to do as it was done with a .005 pen. My 'working drawings' lecturer would be disgusted with my lettering, it's a bit all over the show! All of the coverage of the US elections on our TV lately, has prompted me to do some reading, & this is what I am reading today. What an inspiration – what truth – what grace – how sad it is as humans we feel compelled to extinguish the brightest lights.
