Exercise 40. Landscape: Vertical Framing

More proactively, go outside and find for yourself a landscape view that has a vertical foreground object in it. Sketch 3 gesture drawing versions of this on the next blank page. One requires the vertical object to be in the center of the frame. One should have it placed on the right-side third division line. The final view needs to be placed on the left-side third division line. These drawings don’t need to be too detailed-just distinct enough to differentiate the foreground from the background. Consider them all and reflect on the merits, or not, of each. Make notes on the page if it helps you remember what you are noticing. (Take no more than 4 minutes to complete each drawing.)
