Back to the drawing board

Slowly. Now that my tables are all painted, I am slowly getting back to working on this drawing that I first showed a bit of here. I still have a heck of a time getting a good image to post, but this does give some idea of where I am with it now. Overall, it is 10.5 x 13.5 inches, too big for my scanner. I don't know what I was thinking! I have the sky complete to a point, as I am sure that once I begin putting in the ocean and the sand that I will be making adjustments to the sky. This is all colored pencil (Faber-Castell Polychromos) on Rising Museum board.

This is so lovely Ann. While it may have been hard to get a good picture of it, I can tell there is a fair amount of work here already. That darn light coloured stuff just doesn't show our efforts! :-) Look forward to seeing the ocean and the sand. Glad to read I got first dibs on the furniture! Heehee..

It's a beautiful sky. I know you can handle the larger painting. It's just a bit bigger than some other's you've done but basically the same idea. Keep up the good work!

It's just beautiful - you captured the delicate colors and the wispyness (is that how you spell that? is it even a word?) perfectly! nancy
