The Organic Artist
The natural landscape is not just a source for artistic inspiration; it's a source for art supplies too. Drawing on ancient techniques, artist and primitive arts instructor Nick Neddo demonstrates how to practice the art of making without frequent trips to the art supply store. Make a pen from a black walnut twig and use it to draw the tree's form. A beeswax crayon can inspire a honeycomb pattern. Charcoal sticks, bamboo ink wells, and feather quill pens are just the beginning of what's possible when you start looking around. Learn to find satisfaction in the natural process of transformation.
