Because there is literally nowhere in the world I'd rather be than sitting on a porch swing on a covered porch overlooking the mountains on a rainy day. This week's  #scribblepicnic theme was cabin and I'm not gonna lie it was hard. Just coming up with an idea and where the hell to start. I almost skipped it entirely. But that's not very challenging. So I started with the mountains. And from there I added the rest of the cabin. It's certainly not a great drawing technically speaking but honestly it turned out a lot better than I thought it would. It's refreshing to step out of your comfort zone. Embrace the unknown. Know that if you mess up you can just smudge the pencil with your finger a bit and make all those harsh lines fade away. I love that it ended up having that vague foggy look because it's days like these I feel the most at peace. And a huge thanks to the weather for giving me such a great storm today! I actually drew this several days ago when it was sunny 🌞🌧💨 #rainydays #mountainliving #inspiration #828isgreat #inlovewiththemountains #cabininthewoods #sketch #pencilsketch #beginner #scribbledrawing #messylines #imperfect #doodling #drawing #makesomeart #artchallenge @dotty_hill

  • dotty_hillI love your write up and need to go look at this on my computer too so I can more filylly appreciate that soft dreamlike quality you refer to here! Thank you so much for playing along. Everything you add here is spot on- it's about engaging that creative ice side, not necessarily perfecting it all but just taking the time out at least to consciously be creative! You've done that here. Well done. So glad too that you did not give up as, yes, your piece came out fine!! Thank you too for tagging me as it can be hard finding pieces otherwise with just the hashtag.
