Reverse Image

 SpiritSong Tarot ~ Hanged Man

I have to agree with the artist, being upside down gives a new perspective. I've trimmed the borders off a few decks and inked the edges of a few, looking at every card from all four sides is good mental exercise. 

i took a little self-class in Drawing From The Right Side Of The Brain, where you turn the item you are drawing upside down. It is a great skill improver exercise. 

I think I'll try building one of my paper collages upside down today. Perhaps better insight will come, more light from a different direction is always a good thing.

  1. The upside-down method was a great exercise for me; it pointed out how I easily I focus on my firm idea of what something is 'supposed' to look like instead of actually seeing what is there.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
