    EOW #74 Real world: your neighbor's backyard

    EOW #74 Real world: your neighbor's backyard

    EOW #74 Real world: your Neighbor's Backyard


    DUE December 21 rd


    Brief. your neighbor's back yard. i want a real place here. include a photo of the view if possible. If you can draw or paint directly from the site. do so. If you need to photo and ref.. make multiple sketches that can work too. But make it interesting.
    Part of this is not getting arrested as a stalker.
    I will be very flexible on my definition of Neighbor and my definition of Backyard. for urban dwellers I would suggest Alleys, vacant lots. Dumpsters things one normally doesn't look at.


    DESCRIPTION REQUIRED..just tell us where you are. Not detailed enough for stalkers

    required elements

    description
    ref pics or thumbnails
    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    this could get someone in trouble if they live next to a school, or a nuclear balistic misile base

    Wha.... hell no! I live in the city-center in a huge building consisting of flats! Should i draw the dumping area or the parking lot? No way!
    But.... at night, it looks quite nice when i take a look out of my window and see the enlighted streets.... is this also possible? It´s no kind of backyard, but like you mentioned, i´m a urban dweller....

    sure.
    the intention is to look at something real that you might not usually pay attention to . and make an interesting image out of it.
    but take a good hard look at that dumping area and that parking lot. with clever composition and creative use of materials you might be able to make something out of them too.

    I'm excited to do this, but I'm spending this week driving cross-country. Do I draw the back of my car? I don't really have anything that won't be changing daily. Looks like I have to sit this one out

    That's alright. I lived in Cleveland Ohio for 12 years until I moved here. I saw plenty of that snow too.

    why not? Urban landscapes can be some of the most evocative there are. Catch the parking lot in the early morning or just before dusk when the lighting is the most interesting.

    Here's a couple of ref's for you:

    These by Adam Forfang
    http://www.johnpence.com/visuals/pai...ang/window.htm
    http://www.johnpence.com/visuals/pai...ng/sundown.htm

    These by our own Carl Dobsky
    http://www.johnpence.com/visuals/painters/dobsky/5.htm
    http://www.johnpence.com/visuals/pai...dobsky/lot.htm <-- that one is of particular interest

    Ciao,
