Nothing to See Here
How do you draw wind? I had an assignment that involved making it look like the wind was blowing. So I started thinking, How exactly do I do that? I guess I could make the little dotted lines that swirl around…or maybe make everything lean in the same direction? But, really, how do you draw things that aren’t there? If you’re drawing a landscape and you know there’s wind, how can you convince anyone that it’s there in the drawing?
Now I’m going to be thinking about this for the rest of the weekend. There must be some elegant way of doing it. I’m going to do some research.
Meanwhile, here’s a drawing where things are moving. Are you convinced?
