Day 29 - A Drawing a Day

Frederick Franck from The Zen of Seeing:
I have learned that what I have not drawn I have never really seen, and that when I start drawing an ordinary thing, I realize how extraordinary it is, sheer miracle.

As seen through a window, vignettes of a trip in Vietnam, by Marj Leggitt. There are great notes and drawings here, and Marj used the time in vans to
create some lasting images for her memories.

How About: Outlines, outlines, outlines. Use outlines only, also called a contour (following edges), or a cartoon (full outlines), to document things around you: landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, fruits, vegs, flowers, cacti, cats, dogs, lizards....
