Session #077, Work #067

 

For some reason I really couldn’t get motivated today. I went to Carkeek park after deciding not to go for a long hike in the mountains somewhere.

But, even at the park I didn’t feel like painting, mainly because there were so many people. I ended up driving to Saint Edwards Park on the east side of lake Washington. I walked around there for a bit and did a small hike down to the lake.

The building there was interesting, but no matter what I saw I just wasn’t in the mood for a painting.

So I ended up driving home and re-visiting the sand castle that I painted a long while back. Here, here and here. I was even out of sorts with the drawing, just no focus and I only spent an hour on it. Not really happy with my performance today.

How can I improve the drawing

I’m only comparing the drawing today, I didn’t get into much values at all. Its fairly accurate, but could be much better.
