Here is the original picture I took when I was in Paris, pretty huh? Now try drawing it.
I don't always sketch in pencil first, but I needed to lay out the picture carefully this time
Then, because I was nervous to start with the pastels, I tried "underpainting" with colored pencils. Which didn't really do much since the pastels covered it completely, but it gave me a chance to see how the colors would work out.
Keep coloring, Hil, you'll get there eventually.
So, it was a good challenge, although the carousel was harder than I wanted it to be. But at least I tried drawing something other than Rodin statues, right?
