The other day in drawing class I just started playing around with my colored pencils. No plan in mind, just started cross-hatching on the page. Of course, usually when I have no plan in mind, I end up with a landscape of some kind, because that’s what I love doing most. Landscape with sky. So in the course of a couple of hours, I went from blank, white page to this soft, quiet landscape. I used a lot of cross-hatching, giving it this wonderful texture. I think it has a nice feeling of space and perspective. I probably used about fifteen or more colors on this, but I couldn’t even begin to remember which ones. I love the way it reminds me of a quiet, warm, summer day. From far away, those rocks look like a flock of sheep, which is kind of fun.
