Val,

Glad you found it before it found it's way to the bin.

It's quite nostalgic.

Was it a P n I Lesson or just something you drew on your own?

aloha

Going back and seeing this after two years, I find I'm not so critical of it anymore. The blobs that had me  :pullhair: don't matter so much, and the missed out bits just don't matter because other than a few that really stand out to me, I've forgotten all the rest.

Now I can assess it for what is there, and not so much for what  isn't. This is why it is so important to keep these early masterpieces.... wow...I wasn't half bad, eh?   :whistle:     :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Mea, I had only done a couple of the line lessons, and the first little house and boxes before getting so excited I went off on a tangent and did the truck! Typical of me, no?  ;D

This I did on my own from a photo I took up in Belize a few years ago. Didn't have a clue how I was going to do it, just went at it as though it was a live class.... you wouldn't believe the conversations I had with Dennis during this one! Good thing he wasn't within hearing distance!   :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Ta much Annie, the license plate isn't the only thing I missed! But....it does emphasize the fact that less is more, so I'm not telling!  :-X    :2funny:

Much appreciated Gita.  :1hug:   This may have been just a wee bit ambitious for my first real go with a dip pen.... but looking at it now two years later, pretty ballsy!  :eek:    :2funny:

Val, I managed to read the whole thread in my pause now and I am still smiling. Can´t laugh loud right now at work eventhough I feel like doing it. :2funny: :2funny:
This thread with your comments even excels your amazing truck in quality!   O0 Like someone already mentioned in this thread your witty comments are a great pleasure to read and tell me, you did´nt go for poetry yet?  :gl:

By the way, I do have to brush up with my urban and slang dictionary ..... :fight: Living for too long in Germany  :whistle:
