The strategy he talked about to draw Organics was
1. Sketch out your subject in line
2. Place imaginary grid
3. Foliage acts as shapes and patterns
4. You need to edit out info. Make sure to anchor the architecture even if you don't see the bottom.
5. You need a sense of foreground, middleground, and background.
6. Use the marker to simplify or group.
This is a sketch I need to finish of the Japanese Tea House at Huntington. I may try to finish it. I think my trees are more pattern than 3 dimensional. I need to work on that more.
This is a sketch of a pavilion in the Chinese garden. I tried to save it with the marker but I think I'm getting a little gimmicky with the black foreground trick I learned from Will Weston.My rock edges were first too jagged and it was reading like a weird shaped bush. Ed had me straighten my lines to contrast the rocks to the bushes and trees.
