The World is Round - Circular Perspective
About a week into my trip to Cuba my sketching valves opened and I started to loosen up and have fun. I had done a couple of aerial perspectives and without much planning, sat down and generated this sketch.
Part of it was loosening up my hand by drawing for a week, but probably of more influence was the visits to the collective print studio - Taller Experimental de Garfica de la Habana, which is just off the Plaza de la Catedral. Those visits had me thinking about representing what I saw, or even using what I was sketching as a starting point for composition and moving away from strict documentation of the subject. A breakthrough for me, as it was really fun to do and adds a fresh approach to my repertoire.
