I told you I would do some work drawing while we were on vacation, and I'm so proud of myself because I DID!!! I sat in the sun overlooking beautiful Crater Lake and drew this from my photo reference. I felt a little guilty that I was not doing a beautiful landscape in such surroundings, but still life is my first love.
I was so engrossed in the drawing and my music playing on my headphones that I seriously sunburned my shoulder, to the point it turned nearly purple and peeled. Jeeze, I haven't done that silly sunburn thing in at least thirty years. Ouch.
Anyway, here's the photo and the resulting drawing. I plan to start painting on it this week or next, along with the cherries painting. My first attempt to have more than one work going at a time.
