Boyfriend's B-Day Present

another close up of the shack and trees and scribbles - ahh feels nice to be done! now we get to mat it and frame it! SO EXCITED! :)
Mtns and hills close up! amazing how scribbles from afar make a picture!
Up close - looks soo different. My favorite thing to draw was the little broken down house.
WAHOO! I am done.. well can an artist ever really be done? i could work on this thing forever. Good thing the boyfriend won't let me - ahh art oh oh i love but hate you!
Ooh look we are almost there - notice i still need to do the transition from mtns to green hillside - always tough going from light to dark gradually!
Look color - i think i like these pasteles - alot faster then colored pencil! haha except i get the chalky dust over everything including me! such a mess i am! :p - stay tuned for final - almost there! YAY!
Ready or not here i go - good thing they are erasable! :)
I chose to do it in pastels! havent done those since highschool - how hard can it be... right? hahaha
first buying the paper at the local craft store - 2nd i printed off the photo i black and white to get a better idea of lights and darks. 3rd white charcoal pencil is my best friend and helps give me the quick sketch (skeleton) of the photo.

It all started with this Picture - guess the boyfriend really and I mean SUPER LIKES this picture HE took :) He wants it drawn, painted, etc in ALL medians. So guess who is first on his list? ME! He looked at me with these puppy dog eyes and asks for my bday i would LOVE it if you would draw this for me - PLEASE - so of course I had to, even if i haven't drawn for a year or 2.
