Nice job Jennylynn. You have interpreted your bg in your own way. Carol, yay! A challenge. The size of your outhouse gives it an immediacy (well i guess immediacy and outhouses sometimes go hand in hand) and strong focus. The trees are scrumptious and very natural looking.

 :clap: :clap:  Jennylynn, excellent drawing of the outhouse.  Your shading is exceptional.  Good job.




 :clap: :clap:   Carol, another fine job.  Your outhouse is beautifully done too.

You achieved a depth in your drawing Dorothy. It should do Batman proud!

Good job on the outhouse, Jennylynn, Carol and Dorothy!   O0
Hey!  I don't wanna know what Val does to blow the doors off or drawers off.... :P ...
One thing I do know that I learned from when I was a working girl, is that all that stuff in there runs down hill!   :thumbdown:
You guys are so much fun!  I miss being on the forum as often and as long lately.   
I wish I had time to draw the outhouse.  It's quite nostalgic. 
Val, next time maybe a chamber pot?  Nostalgic too on those cold winter nights.   :cold:
 :offtopic:  and on a personal note -- There will be a juried alumni art show coming up at the college where I graduated nursing and I'm planning to enter two of my drawings, 'Pine in the Park' , 'The Con Darling Memorial' and a recent acrylic painting I did that is in for framing.  You can see my drawings in my gallery and I'll post my painting when I get a chance.  This will be a new experience for me and never could have drawn a thing before the Let's Draw Course.
