Turf drawing I. by nimra Turf drawing I. by nimra
Turf drawing I.

10” x 10” pencil on cold press water color paper

This type of drawing does not have the initial impact as Name of the Father or Occasional Angel, for me though it is very important to go back to a simpler concept once in a while.

This is part of a sires of works called “observing the insignificant” its more about natural abstraction then nature drawing although it is very carefully observed and rendered. An artist has the ability to engage someone with an image that they would normal not see and just walk by it, like this three inch piece of turf underfoot. Every day people walk by this insignificant scene , never noticing, never looking, at some point I did.

Is funny how the photo and the drawing of this can have a opposite impact.
