Pastel 52 - Clouds and Wind over Fields
While drawing today (working on Pastel 60) I found for the umteenth time that what Hundertwasser said was true - nature uses almost no straight lines and almost no right angles. They disrupt the natural order. I like the juxtaposition of human angles and planes in a landscape under certain conditions, but more frequently it doesn't work. The drawing for #60 has one vertical straight line in it, and it is the only thing on the page I find, after considerable time staring at the drawing and trying to engage in a right brain shift, that I want to erase, and that keeps me anchored on the left.
