On the drawing board and easel...

I feel like I finally hit my stride!  There's no knowing what finally kicked into gear but I'm feeling it!

The drawings are coming together. It's been really interesting working on these, especially the first one.  The camera distorts the angles and perspective so I have to correct the distortions using my shaky knowledge of linear perspective and memory. I'm debating weather to keep them as line only or add value.  Once they're finished I'll take them to Kinkos to have them enlarged so I can transfer them to canvas.

Can you tell by my color choices that I LOVE autumn?  There's something about the changing colors and cool air that inspires me.
