This morning The Great Group met at the Columbia Center Mall
and drew around the Santa Claus area.
We did this last year as well (there was only Jim and I) and I remembered:
the area is HUGE and BUSY and CROWDED.
My drawing reflected that (and SILLY, I might add).
This first drawing was a warm up to keep me focused on ONE thing - a wrapped gift.
The last drawing - I was ready! I started with the soldier's hat and went from there.
Lots of detail and lots of steady as she goes round and round to the edges of the tree.
It made little sense until I painted it.
Again, Great Group - so fun!!!
