carry it home in a tote sack

 Here are two drawings from the same day and the same place. They are, I think, examples of how a drawing can go either way. I drew them both at a field day and they are of a stall that was a celebration of all things bread. It mapped the story of bread from back in time and from around the world. Very interesting and very tasty.

The top drawing pleases me quite a lot. It's got a touch of the Patrick Caulfield about it (who I absolutely adore). The bottom one is atrocious. Way too much going on and way too overdone.

You win some, you lose some.

i like them both, the top for its simplicity and color; the bottom one for the fact that you were capturing everything in the moment. imagine if it too was in color....

Love the bakery. Another artist that comes to mind, and who I love, is Stuart Davis.

I think the second one could be salvaged with some areas just pushed back with a shadow know push and pull to separate it into several areas. It is a lot of work not to try to salvage...Miz Dee
