New drawing from photo

Whew…it’s been a busy summer and have only done a little drawing. But managed to do one the other day. I started by using a background grid to keep everything in proportion and then found that I wasn’t even looking at it! That was a big realization for me! I am beginning to see how shapes relate to each other in distance and proportion without the help of a grid. Can’t wait to do more with fabric! I have a couple of challenge quilts coming up, but can’t reveal them until they are revealed at the guilds and the voting is over.
