A Quick Photo

Drawing this piece made me think about our trip to Yosemite about six years ago. Cruising through the park we ended up stopping at almost every vista point for "a quick photo", as there were so many beautiful sceneries to explore.

Drawing A Crowd

This is the result of me just having some fun, getting some practise drawing people and animals.
