I'm asked to put up some sphere drawings. As they are completely associated to these fruit sketches and and done for the "sphere and fruit lesson" that I gave to my students, I ad them here, today, much later as 27 of March 2013.
Funny that I talk about "sunny fruits" below, I remember I felt for sun and ripe fruits back then, in november! A strange year we got to cope with! No warmth yet and only little sun!! It never happened since I'm living in France (86) that a winter was as cold and ugly as this one. Well, I hope it can't last for ages, even if we can get a short spring and a lousy summer. I wish for the best!
Hope you all get a nice coming season too!
These feel quite "sunny" in this typically november weather! Good that some fruits are ripe this time a year! Even though they are not always as tasty as the should, at least not in France. The other day I saw some oranges from Australia in my grocery store nearby, isn't THAT absurd?! What happened to the fruit trees in Europe? This global living and warming will hit us when it's too late, and for many it is already.
Lately I do these kind of basic studies for a few students of mine. I can feel it does me good too! I have to pay attention to; what's happening on the paper, at what moment, with how much water and color, ... to be able to transmit it in words.
