Creek through Crayons
The piece of art that I chose for this weeks blog is one that is created by the artist John Stuart. John Stuart is of scottish descent but is now living in Tennessee as a pastor. In the picture, he decides to use dry media to create his drawing of a creek. What is special about his drawings are that although they are made of crayon, he is attempting to make chalk like drawings. This is a process that he calls "digital glass" because he first used these chalk-like crayons to create stained glass patterns for his church. By completing drawings in this way, they are very close to becoming 3-dimensional which even include texture. I believe that in this specific drawing, the media used truly helps the drawing appear more life like, as if the water is truly moving.
