pinecone sketch

Posted on by Wess Foreman

This is a simple contour drawing I did yesterday of a pinecone---ten minutes of peaceful observation as I let my hands articulate on paper what my eyes measured before them---and the meditative attentiveness alone was worth my time. Not to mention the brief bit of what one might call "spatial practice" that I got out of it.
