"Painting 'Carrot' Figures VIDEO"

(scroll down for more info and links)

Dear Artist,
Painting "Carrot" Figures

Thanks for your very positive response for last week's video BobBlast.

Include human images to your plein aire scenes to help indicate scale.
Don't be concerned with any detail - just a "carrot shape," which is a
vertical stripe, wider at the top and narrower at the bottom.

Paint "carrots" in animated shapes, freely and loosely to suggest movements. Practice these and fill an entire page in your sketchbook with lots of small thumbnails of these carrots. Add shadows to your carrot images - it helps
to anchor your carrot figure to the land and suggests a light source direction.

Paint a Bunch!
