Next assignment....an up-close and personal look at something...really "zoom in, but we should still be able to tell what it is." Wow. Okay, it's fall, so how about some Indian corn? And so you have it. The subject matter is set, now it's time to draw corn kernels. Gotta admit, after a while, when you're painting something like this, you see blobs of color, not kernels. But the thing to remember is to occasionally step away from the painting. So I did, and what do you know! They're Indian corn kernels. Again, one of those subject assignments I probably never would have done on my own -- but one which proves to be rather satisfying when it's completed.
