This is an oops sketch. I didn't work my way across the drawing in a measuring sort of way and as a result, the carton ended up too long. But, to show that the sketch is not precious, I went over the lines and made corrections and even am posting it! The point is to draw, and I did, and learn, and I am.

Someone in the Everyday Matters group mentioned that she carries photos of things she wants to draw with her, so that when she has a spare minute, she can get some drawing done. I think it's a great idea, and when I had some time recently to draw, I realized I had this photo of a saddlebill stork, native to Africa, so I drew it. (It gets its name from the yellow "saddle" on its beak.) I had been working on a science scavenger hunt at the zoo for my science students and happened to have it. Otherwise, what a random photo to have along! Now I am carrying other photos...
