I decided to try this week's challenge photo today. I did something different and held my pencil like a wand to draw almost the entire thing. (95%, I'd say.) It was really enjoyable and seemed to free up my right brain. I used a 4B pencil and probably could have even gone softer. I moved and changed the tree and the sign and added a road. I don't like the tree in the middle of the page, so I will change that when I do my final design. I call it an exploration drawing because holding my pencil like a wand freed up my mind to investigate, wander and play. Try it, you might like it too.
