hey Mary Lou, I was thinking the exact same thing ..... I think it could be quirky and cute or classic country .....

Super duper, Jennylynn. . . . .  Nice job on the outhouse and I really like your trees!
Mary Lou your little outhouse on the hill is great as well!
 
You two make me feel inadequate. . . I haven't even looked for a piece of paper to draw on yet!! Woo hoo I may be drawing on TP if I don't get a wiggle on! :2funny:
I do have me drawers firmly nailed to the woodshed so that when Val blows through. . . . . although we are waiting and waiting and waiting. . . . .  Can't imagine what she is going to do to blow the drawers off  everyone??? ??
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

Uh-boy .... how do you guys get these things done so fast? I started my drawing in my sketchbook...as usual, it seemed to grow of its own accord and I seem to have more outhouse than scenery  ::)

So...do I focus on the outhouse 'Big Time', or start again really small and hopefully end up with the right size. I seem to run into this a lot when freehanding.  ???

Hope you don't get too gassed up over this Sarah  :eek:   ...after all, I have until the end of the month!  :whistle:
Cheers, Val

Wow Mary Lou and Jennylynn. Great job.  :clap: :clap:


Val I started my sketch as well. There's a lot of work in it.  :sweat:  But as you say, there is a whole month ahead of us. Oh how I love to draw.  :yippee:

Love it, Love it, Love it Jennylynn.  You always take a subject and make it your own.  Well done.


Hey Val, having the same issue here.  My outhouse is large too.  I just went with it.

Jennylynn, your drawing is great!  O0 I love your background.  :smitten: So neat to see how others interrupt the same picture!
And, thank you for your comment,  thank you too, Maria, Roxy, Dorothy and Tousabella.
 
Denise, I am always looking for something to paint and this might fit the bill.  I have a watercolor lesson first, though. 
 
Val, my outhouse was a bit bigger than I wanted too!  But I was happy that it is free hand for a change. It's artistic license!  Go for it!
