In my previous post I mentioned an art project I was working on. Well, today I finally finished it. Woo hoo! I was getting antsy to have it done and over with by the time I got about 3/4 of the way through, which isn't anything out of the ordinary for me. Behold, my latest graphite drawing entitled: All That Remains -- Ruined church of Zelemér, Hungary

The photo reference came from a search on Google Earth, which you can see here. From what I've read, the ruins of this church are the last remains of a medieval town that had once existed around it. I did take liberty in changing a few things from the original photo, like the removal of the footprints in the snow and the poles for the power lines in the background. The original drawing has far more finer details than what the photo shows and isn't grey. I did draw it on white paper. I need to invest in a light box (or have the boyfriend build me one) so I can take better photos of my drawings. But for now, this is the best I can do. Our scanner makes it look worse.
And now onto my next project, if only I could decide on which photo of Mr. Wilde to draw? Hmm. Oh, and maybe I should work on my novel, too. Definitely not going to have that first draft done by tomorrow. The battle between my muses continues...
