One Drawing A Day Exercise #4

One Drawing A Day exercise 4! Yesturday felt like Christmas with the snow! I have to say I did love the little preview of the upcoming holiday! I decided to relax since I'm feeling under the weather and do a drawing. I looked through the One Drawing A Day book and decided to do excerise #4. The exercise was to draw a portrait from TV. I decided to draw Diana Ross, I'm sure you all know by now she's my favorite! Here are a few portraits of her during two of her performances.-Danielle

Gas Works Park

This past summer I had the opportunity to go to Seattle, WA with the Dalvero Academy. I have to say I had the best time. One of my favorite places was the Gas Works Park. What an incredible place to draw.  I felt like I could spend weeks there and still not draw everything.

Here is a little thumbnail drawing I did while I was there.
