52-Don’t forget it’s just a shape!

Foliage and trees can appear pretty complicated, so as not to get overwhelmed it’s important to remember the overarching forms or shapes that make up everything. Sometimes, I forget!

We can simplify even the most complex forms down to the basic shapes. If we then keep in mind the light source (the sun), it’s direction we can make it easier for ourselves.

With some types of foliage it’s pretty easy…

Other’s, especially wispy airy foliage masses get a little tricky. But keeping in mind, they are simply forms in space, can help us determine to the elemental shapes and avoid getting distracted by the details.
