So, I’ve been diddling and doodling around with these drawings, so far, try to get the perfect balance of realistic drawing and fanciful design.
I redid 101. Having done the one that was mostly a half-hearted try at a good realism, I decided to have a little fun instead. Here’s the redo, of 101.
These go so fast……..last night I knocked out one in a couple of hours. It was more fun in this case, to draw as realistically as possible. I was a little hesitant to do this drawing…for fear it would turn out as a colored pencil Bob Ross. It didn’t, and I’m quite pleased with it.
Early in the summer, my friends and I went to a park in Connecticut……….Kent Falls. I snapped a photo to work from in light so bright, I couldn’t see the viewfinder. Somehow managed to come out. Worked on it, last night. This was the result.

Also, I am eager to put together the tent and display panels, to get ready for show biz. Since I think it’s late to do any shows this year, I figured we’d wait until less oppressive weather to assemble the display
