it's all about the basics



when i'm working on something complex and intricate i always find it useful to go back to the basics of shape, large forms and light direction. i'll start with shape and really be concoious of design and sihloutte. then what are the main forms and how will light react to them. once that is set in my mind i can add detail but it's always subordinate to the larger ideas. the more i make art the more i discover it's not about which brushes or which trick or technique. it's about the foundation of art. drawing, observation, color...those things

AMEN!!! I sometimes run into roadblocks where I feel it's about the brushes, until I hit myself in the head and remember the basics. I personally love to put emphasis on Shape and Value. =)

I really appreciate your focus and craftsmanship. What you've said here is so encouraging and even though hundreds of sites say it over and over, to see you say its about the basics just encourages me. Your work is so amazing, and to hear that phrase associated with your stuff is a real gem. Thanks, amazing eye!

Hello dear .You put really very helpful information.
It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Mehndi is an impressive and healed art for our body, heart and soul. Unique mehndi designs will make you different in front of others.  These  is a very necessary part of our culture. There are many types of variations in Mehndi Designs like Arabic, Pakistani, Bridal, Traditional, and as well as Indian Designs, etc. And here you will find some of most unique and excellent mehandi designs to make you look exquisite.

arabic mehndi designs are entirely different. Usually, there is not much complexity in these drawings, and large contours are drawn, and the interior is full of lines and dots. Quite in contrast to Indian motifs, Arabs do not cover the whole hand. Mehandi season has come, and all the brides are too busy deciding their bridal mehndi designs. Mehandi celebration is one of the most fun-filled and glamorous pre-wedding gatherings.
