Just a bit of practice while I was away for a few days. I hope you like it.

Do you keep sketch journals when traveling? It's a good practice that I have never started. What a quaint little scene.

Lovely drawing, Zilpa it looks just like my grandparents home in Drente, when i was 4 or 5 years old.

 :thankyou: Sarah, Rita and Val, Taking a sketch book is a habit that I am just starting to get into as well Sarah. Up to now I have just copied pictures but now it is time for me to try the real thing. I want to be able to draw what ever I see. I am starting to see though. I am seeing how I could shade different objects, so now I have to put it into practice.

 :thankyou: njnjgirl. I have nearly all my drawings done in sketch books or knowing me I would loose them all over the place while I am learning anyway. That way I can use them for reference. :)
