“It is a familiar fact that colours of a landscape become more vivid when seen with the head upside-down. The change of physical position does not cause a new physical element to be injected, but it does signify that a somewhat different organism is acting”. John Dewey, 1934
I’ve decided to join the 30 Day Rewild your Life Challenge run by Alissa Wild and. Kevin Park of We are Wildness http://www.wearewildness.com. It started yesterday, April 1st (it’s not too late to join) and the idea is to make time for 30 minutes each day for the month of April. There is a great facebook group where people are sharing their gorgeous pics from all over the world. I’ve decided to head into nature daily and create.
So after dropping my daughter off the at WOLF nature program I headed out to beautiful south facing Mehinnick Beach and found myself stretching out over a big log looking up at the sky and overhanging tawny Arbutus branches.
It’s at that moment when I had the idea to draw from my upside down position.
To my surprise, when I got home I checked my email and turns out today’s Rewild activity was about perspective- mostly getting up high to get an overview- but getting a fresh perspective none-the-less….
Here’s a fun video of flip you world drawing I did. Give it a try, it’s super relaxing and fun!
