St. George Grange at Wiley's Corner. Adult drawing class display, 9/24/18

Class drew from digitally outlined and gridded reproductions of my reference photo as well as the actual photo. Some people find the grid helps see the actual angles a line is at. I tend to get too mixed up trying to concentrate in that environment and just get frustrated. Draw a grid of squares freehand. Using a ruler is pointless if you are not going to make lines perpendicular. Practice getting your lines perpendicular even if they are wobbly.

A student brought in an acrylic painting as a present. It is a sunset with clouds, water, grass, and 'stems', (or trunks-?). These 'stems' look to me like five crows watching the sunset.
