Star field and ‘gray hole’.
At first blush, this is a photograph of nothing interesting. But I took the picture anyway. When I looked at it later, I saw the imitation of the light patterns in the indistinct, eroded painting on the ground: the edge of a white line; the edge of a shadow; dark and bright areas of substance and light.
This sunlit leaf causes me to imagine I can see its veins extending down to the chlorophyll itself, sucking up the energy and transmitting it to the rest of the tree. The intervening leaf blocking the sunlight to a portion of the bright green leaf steals a bit of its sun. However, the tree gets it all.
I liked the look of this gentleman. I did several mostly blind sketches of him. I added details using sighted drawing. Here is the one from yesterday.
