Reflection...365 Days of Drawing


The good thing about doing something daily is it pushes you and makes you shake things up a bit to keep things fresh. I drew a lot in my teaching class at CAI yesterday but nothing I could post here.

I returned home, after running painting errands, tired knowing I had most certainly met the challenge for the day and could put me feet up.

But I was excited by the boat sketch from the day before, wanting to do some more. I also realized the boats and River Rance reflections I painted in Dinan were really helping me with my local marina in tackling that for the first time.

I learned more in France than I realized. And I am only just really beginning to understand how much.

White chalk, charcoal, and watercolor wash...

Julie...thank you. I was happy with this piece. This drawing challenge is making me do all sorts of things. I am wondering by December what on earth will be coming out of me. It really is a daily whirlwind.
