"Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them."
– John Updike
An artist that I follow, Leslie White, inspired me to try a contour drawing. It was fun. The drawing took about 2 minutes. Then, I filled it in with watercolor (about 15 minutes). I need to do more of this! This is done on a 4" x 6" Indian Village watercolor postcard.
