Today I decided I wanted to actually draw the subject I was going to paint. Sadly, I am very very bad about drawing on a regular basis. Next month that will be my challenge to myself. It took me hours to draw this and it still isn’t exactly like the photo I took, but it’s close enough that I don’t think my mistakes will haunt me as I paint it. That can be the case, though if you don’t get it right. It bites you in the butt when you try to paint it.
