I visited the cemetery today. I wanted to draw some of the statues there. I brought my sketch book, and sat in the car and sketched a bit, but I wasn't close enough to what I wanted to draw. It's still very cold out with some snow on the ground, so instead of standing and drawing outside, I got out and took pictures instead. Then, at home I drew from the picture on the computer screen. Drawing this was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. I'm glad I'm taking the time to practice, it reveals to me the things I need to work on.
