Two Drawings

The bottom drawing is from this morning's walk, and the top from this evening's walk.  I like the longer days.  More time to draw outside.  You might think that I don't get very far on my walks, since I seem to stop at the same spot.  More talk'n draw than walk'n draw.  But I do go a distance after making a drawing.    

The top one is done with hard conte pencil and soft charcoal pencil, the bottom with just conte.  The hard conte pencil is very resistant so gives a nice dragging, hesitant effect.

They are holding my place.  I will have more paintings and drawings later after the weekend.
