Back to the drawing board

Landon Bay Bridge, St. Lawrence Island National Park, Onatrio - Conté crayon on paper
Yes, I know... I'm "back again". Well, truth is I never left. Just allowed certain circumstances to get in the way of drawing. Not anymore.

Going to draw for drawings sake, practice, and just the joy of creating.

What's funny is the conté crayon I used for this is from when I was in college... over 18 years ago! That, together with the charcoal and graphite sticks I have, they were just begging to be used. The drawing may look unfinished, but that is as far as I wanted to take it. And at the size I was drawing, conté crayon was not the best choice. But I wanted to use it, and it worked OK. The only thing that bothers me is the rock lines on the right. They should be angled up a bit more for proper perspective. But, I digress. I enjoyed drawing again.

Neat story behind this bridge. Click here to see how it was built.
