Project Description

Create a sketch based off of a favorite location. This can be in your city or from a photo. If you decide to sketch on location (which I highly encourage!), snap a photo of the location before you leave.

Upload your project along with the photo of your chosen scene to show off what your choices were in what to emphasize and what to simplify. I can't can't can't wait to see everyone's amazing sketches!!!
