|The Finished Painting in my Journal - notice that I combined the 2 rocks in the background|
|The Proportions are still the same.|
|Using my pencil to measure the rocks|
|With my thumb, I measure from the bottom of Haystack Rock to the bottom at the tallest part.|
|Now I measure how wide the rocks are.|
|Here I am using my pencil at a slant to get the correct slope of the rock. Carefully bring this angle down to your watercolor paper.|
If I want to add some of the ocean cabins, I measure how tall they are.
Now that I have all my measurements and comparisons the next step is to do my drawing.
How about you practice drawing something using your pencil to measure and compare and let me know how it goes.
