Backing away from the daily sketching of 2015, to observe more slowly and acutely.

      Thanks it was an enormous contraption. I wish I had put someone beside it for scale.

        Maybe 45 minutes. I actually took a photo of it and drew it later.

        I enjoyed doing this. Are you a psychologist in your day job? You ask interesting questions.

      • LOL! I’m a CPA with a small tax practice, but honestly, when you help people with financial stuff, it helps to be a touchy-feely person. I think it’s kinda like being a hairdresser lol!! 😀

        Laura, I was just thinking about how your questions often involve reflection on the positive feelings I get from the process of drawing. Reflecting on the positive then leads to wanting to do more. Sort of a directed reflection.

      • Totally! I understand what you’re saying and it’s funny because I’ve had clients say similar things. I know you’ve been a little discouraged with your drawings lately too, then I saw this and it was like “shazam!” Looking really good. I wasn’t laughing at your comment, I just think it’s funny when people say that to me. I actually considered psych before accounting! 🙂

    You’ve got some wonderful detail in this sketch and it has a great sense of depth.
