I am so thankful for you all!
I hope that today is filled with all the things that you are thankful for, even if it's just a bit of time that you get to take to draw, doodle or make a bit of art. Here is one of my all-time favorite things to draw-an acorn. This page of 20 ways to draw an acorn is from the book 20 Ways to Draw a Tree and 44 Other Nifty Things from Nature.
I bet you could use these to dress up your Thanksgiving table place-cards or let the little ones try their hand at drawing some acorns while they wait for the feast.
More about the Quarry book:
This is not a step-by-step technique book--rather, the stylized flowers, trees, leaves, and clouds are simplified, modernized, and reduced to the most basic elements, showing you how simple abstract shapes and forms meld to create the building blocks of any item that you want to draw. Each of the 20 interpretations provides a different, interesting approach to drawing a single item, providing loads of inspiration for your own drawing. Presented in the author’s uniquely creative style, this engaging and motivational practice book provides a new take on the world of sketching, doodling, and designing.
