Drawing at the Swimming Hole
When we painted and drew here the other day, it was gray and started to rain, and we returned home before I was really "finished". So, my plan today was to go back and try to finish, or clean-up and tighten-up a bit, my other drawing. However, when I arrived sun was hitting my tree, and it was so lovely, that I was inspired to do another.
Drawing can tell you alot about yourself. I discovered, or I am beginning to realize more and more, that I draw more like a painting. I am attacted to the light effect and the movement, more than the details, and I work from the general to the specific, as I do in painting.
Again, I am using my sketchbook (Fabriano Quadrato Artist's Journal), and I am drawing with pencils and white chalk.
