This quote is for my fellow artists and enthusiasts,
be they students, accomplished professionals or cultivated amateurs.
"I think I am safe in saying, until you became an art student,
you never saw an outline - you never took the outline into consideration.
You saw forms and these forms had character and motion.
If you use lines now as a means of drawing,
try to find the way to make them express what you see
- forms of definite character and movement.
Don't become a victim of line."
- Robert Henri
I think I may just now be able to begin to understand what he meant.

Ha - the b&w really shows how close the light values in the sky and the mountains are.
Well, I knew that was the case ... because that is the way it looked as the afternoon light waned.
One more week! Thank you for checking in!
