Sketch Challenge

One of the challenges on Scavenger Hunt 480  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1419226  was to sketch the view out a window and then sketch the same window but with the view back inside.  I did the view out sketch as my first on this Hunt.  It was in the 30s for a few days so didn't get the challenge done.  It is supposed to get up to 80 today so I went on the porch and sketched.  I left room next to the first one, so that is where it is in the sketchbook.  Finally!  It is the last day of the Hunt.  Made the deadline.

The challenge of sketching the same view in the window.  I tried to show the dark part as the view in the house and my reflection and the trees were lighter.  Hard to do in black and white.

Previously posted view out.  Interesting that the new sketch is brighter.  Evidently I scanned it and took a photo of this one.  I couldn't scan them together because of where they sit on the page in the big book.  I can only scan half a page and these are above center.  Big difference in the lighting, eh?

 I am so bad about going off to do something else.  Wash clothes or dishes, TV, internet, etc.  I should listen!!!

Congrats on being able to sketch the view out as well as in. I couldn't do that because it was too cold up in Maine and now that I'm home it can't be done. I'll have to go check for the new list.

Joan, I was lucky. Looks like we are having 2 weeks of warm weather. It will probably get cold when Baseball starts, right? Second week in February, I think. That would be normal. Ha.

We will have to remember to try the challenge again in the late spring on a Hunt.
