I had so much fun doing this landscape drawing. Before this class, the only things I drew were portraits and I thought drawing landscapes would be boring and hard. I kept thinking of drawing ten-thousand individual leaves on a tree and that did not sound like fun. Turns out, landscape drawing is just a bunch of smudgy values to create the illusion of texture of a tree or a rock, etc..
I really liked how this turned out so I decided to choose another one of my own landscape pictures for my final drawing. Something with lots of trees so I could smudge values to my heart's content! Anyways. Here's a picture of my final drawing. I decided to incorporate some colored pencil. This is also on high-quality handmade drawing paper that I bought specially for my final drawing.

I took this picture last summer in France. This is just a random bridge in some beautiful random greenery at Leonardo da Vinci's last residence.
I've also painted a couple of things and sewn alot since my last post in March, but I'm terrible at taking pictures of what I make. I will try to do better next time so I can actually post here more often!
