Landscape drawn from a postcard

On the last day of drawing class the teacher helped us with whatever we wanted to try. I wanted to work on a landscape and so brought in a postcard of Cape Breton Island to draw from. I had a hard time drawing the clouds until I flipped the postcard and my paper upside down - it made me concentrate on what I was seeing, not what I thought I was seeing - if that makes sense.

It's not finished yet but I am very happy with how the clouds turned out. I think I will draw the rest of it upside down as well. Guess I better learn to stand on my head for when I draw outside.....


That one on the right looks like it's hovering.
A hover egg.

EDM 92 Paper Bags

From drawing class. And I thought a spoon was a challenge to draw.

EDM 76 Flowers

Picked some wildflowers (aka weeds) during a downpour last summer.

EDM 94 Spoon

Drawing a spoon is not as easy as it looks.
It was even difficult to choose a spoon - should I draw a wood spoon, a holey spoon, a large spooon or a tiny one. I settled on the plainest spoon I could find.
