30 Day Drawing Challenge: Favorite Place

Day 4 is draw your favorite place. This was a difficult one because I had to first decide where my favorite place was.

Do you live in Denver? Have you been to Denver? Quick! Where’s the public art installation named “The Yearling”? What does it look like?

If you live in Denver, you might not know the name of the statue, but you know the statue itself. It’s the GIANT red elementary school chair with a relatively miniature horse standing on it, right outside the public library.

This one

This was going to be my drawing today. I started drawing with an hour left until deadline, but an active baby and other stressors kept me from having the concentration I’d need to do a detailed drawing like this. So instead, I sort of phoned this one in. I picked something quick and easy. It’s lazy, I’m not terribly happy with it, but it’s an OK doodle, and it represents Denver.

Here it is:

Pencil in sketchbook, GIMPed for contrast

Those are the two area codes in Denver, the top more often for land lines, and the bottom more often for cell phones, though those lines have really started to blur. Sorry to have put up such a lazy drawing today, and I promise I’ll try harder tomorrow.

Don’t forget to check out Niki Nowell, Zoe Nowell, freebie, ‘GirlyGeeky‘, and Max Nowell our most recent participant (who I’m told will soon have drawings for all 4 days posted)!

Also, it’s never too late to join in! Don’t forget to let us know so we can link to you.

And, as always, feedback and comments are always appreciated.
