  1. I did my own landscape instead ,recently working in “Plein aire” for the first time at Rocky Mountain National Park . I really enjoyed it, but had to finish last half at home. I may do this light house later though…I’m not keen on drawing buildings but everyone did so well- makes me want to try it!

  2. I almost passed on this one, and I’m so glad I stuck with it! By the time we got to the foreground, I started rushing to complete it for some reason. I think I should have just put it aside for a bit, watched the rest of Scott’s demo, then picked it back up later. But I’m pretty happy overall.

  3. Now this was a challenge but I enjoyed it completely. Really liked drawing the structures, but not too keen on drawing the plants and rocks… but I gave it a go anyways. Thanks Scott for another great Drawing Together Session…. keep the fun challenges coming. 🙂
