I was walking along the river and decided to draw part of the skyline. From where I was, these buildings were very small, and very far away. I decided that I could “improve” things by drawing the buildings larger/closer to me so I put on my ZOOM brain and went to work.
There was only one problem with that idea. If the buildings were close, I should be able to see a bunch of details. I could not and so I started stumbling around (figuratively) trying to figure out what details I “needed” to imaginate. This is harder than it sounds and clearly I need to think about this a lot. I’m used to drawing what I see and I always err on the side of too much detail, which is the opposite of what I should probably doing here. So much to learn, so little time.
