Drawing You Say
It was perfect. Shade, a picnic table, moderate temperature, sunshine. a high vantage point. Well, not exactly. Couldn't see the subject through the big Maple tree. So I got some exercise in sneaking and returning to sit and draw. Have to sit these days.

Now, I do a fair amount of drawing. I try to get it mostly right even though it is not usually my primary concern. During the sketch and subsequent hour of painting here I know something was pretty wrong. Didn't have time or strength to correct on site. After all, its probably mostly right (couldn't see the subject but you know).
After I got home I had to do some investigation. Here is the gist of what I found.
Drawing Check - Simple
Even without seeing the subject I knew the areas that were probably wrong. Easy to correct on the second wet. My constant drawing at least warned me.
