|Notan sketches of a country road|
This set of notans was an interesting challenge. The photo I had taken on a nearby country road showed most of the scene in shadow, with intense evening sun dramatically lighting a group of trees. I had to figure whether to put the road, which was both in shadow and a strong geometric shape, with the darks or lights. I was glad to have these project parameters to encourage me to try it different ways.
Focused practice project parameters: complete 100 landscape notans. 3 minutes per notan, 5 notans per session, 20 sessions to reach 100.
