— Where is the bridge between the imaginative drawing and reality?
The answer to that, as every professional knows, and no amateur practices, is — References. And it takes time and practice to build those references and that ever eluding visual library of the mind. You know the people who can draw from imagination? That’s a skill that has been honed over time. And i know what you are thinking, but those people are not crazy! Well, maybe crazy imaginative, but the reason anyone can draw spontaneously is because over time there is a compounding of skills and knowledge.
No excuse for hard work aye? Back to the illustration then.
I was looking for flowers that bloom in the morning and found these beauties — Portulaca oleracea.
And also read a little about morning glory. These dudes flower everyday. So nice of them. haha
