Cosmic Couple Drawing:
Having a sense of passion for art, I decided to use my talent to illustrate the aspects of the observable natural world using coloured pencils. Drawing lets me free my mind of my imagination by letting me express what goes on in my head. When I was told to convey the aspects of the observable natural world, images and ideas started flashing in my mind. My first idea was to try and combine as many aspects as I could, so I chose the ones that were most meaningful to me.
The more meaningful aspects I chose were the seasons, day and night, and human beings behaviour. To me theses are some of the major aspects of the observable natural world. We can observe these characteristics everyday of our lives and they are always changing. From the colours in trees changing when new seasons approach, the fall of the snow on a winters day, the fall of leaves on a fall day, the fall of rain on a spring day, the appearances of fluffy, white clouds on a summers day. The sun rises during the day and falls during the night. The appearance of the moon and stars on a dark night. Humans show emotions that we can observe. Love (something I haven’t found), anger (when you find out the new season of Game of thrones isn’t out yet), sadness (when a gentle and kind gorilla gets put down for protecting a human child, rip harambe), happiness (when you go on the internet to look at memes).
Humans are everywhere on earth and they impact the natural world in a great way. We can observe our own actions to emotions and decisions everyday in everyday scenarios. I drew a couple holding their hands in a shape of heart to represent that we feel love and can observe it every day. Emotions are truly an amazing sight to see from human beings and other animals. I decided to colour the human bodies in a cosmic style because a famous astronomer by the name of Carl Sagan once said
“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”
Nature is always changing from the decay of living organisms to the birth of new ones. All these features make up the natural world that we observe everyday and will continue to see and learn from in the future days.
My next piece is a drawing of a wolf, my favorite animal out of all the animals on earth. Animals are a key feature in the natural world. Animals are very popular aspect of the natural world that we human beings pay attention to greatly whether its in the wild, the zoo, at home on your laps while you watch Netflix or even watching the funny compilations of them on the internet or documentaries. They play a special role in the natural world, to keep it in balance and allow it to improve. I love animals like I’m sure a lot of you do, and I’m always on the watch for them on campus.
