My Punchbowl Runneth Over

Over all, I was pretty happy with how this drawing turned out. Like a lot of people, I was trying to use this project to get back into drawing with charcoal. I've been working almost exclusively with the figure in my work, and to take a step back and do a landscape was a bit of a challenge.

There are a few technical things about the drawing that I don't really like, but I'll have a chance to fix those now. It was mostly some of my mark making decisions that I don't think really portrayed the space and magnitude of the Punchbowl. As far as the conceptual side of my drawing, I think it was somewhat successful. At the very least it gets the viewer intrigued, and might even set up a little narrative.

I think this was one of my favorite drawings from the whole class. You have a really good sense of space and proportion.
Agreed, it's was really nice to make something tactile and take a break from the human figure.
Did you put Devils Tower in the background behind the faucet?

Thanks Andrea. I think I definitely needed the break from the wacom. I was starting to get bored with it, and thats something I never wanted.

Its funny you should ask about the Devils Tower. It's actually one of the faucet knobs. I did notice the resemblance during the critique though. Kind of a cheesy irony having the Devils Tower and Punchbowl in the same drawing.
