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.
