Three lemonsPosted: May 7, 2013
I was leafing through a very old Architectural Digest today and I came upon a reproduction of a plant lithograph by Ellsworth Kelly. Although Kelly is best known for his hard-edge, often geometric abstract paintings, these lithos are simple contour lines — keenly observed and expertly drawn. It made me realize that sometimes I try too hard to find the right scene to draw or paint. Sometimes all it takes is a simple line (and in my case a bit of colour).
