Drawing A Week Challenge – Week 2

Fortunately my best friend fully supports my challenge, and took me out drawing last Saturday! We went to Coronado Heights Castle and Mushroom Rock near Marquette KS. Had time to draw at the castle, by the time we got to Mushroom Rock is was pouring – so just photos – need to go back, awesome spot!

Winston Churchill said the failure isn’t final; good thing too, because I feel my drawings were a failure – although, I admit they inspired me to continue because I need to get what is in my head on the paper!

So here goes…

I refuse to buy new chalk until I learn to work with what I have, so many times I have bought what I think I need and found I didn’t need it or it didn’t help. So I am working with chalks I have had since college (25 years ago – very scary thought) and using scketch book and watercolor paper.
