Portrait of Lisa

The second of two Monday night drawings. This is a better likeness than the drawing of Emma.

I'm beginning to draw with assurance, which is good, because my hand doesn't have a lot of fine control. The brain's gotta do it. I'm starting to keep track of relationships: "This is on a vertical line with that, and a horizontal line with this other thing;" "If I extend that line, it will hit that;" "That's about as long as this." I'd like to speed the process up, so that I just see those things instead of having to look for them. I'm training my nervous system.

An interesting thing happened: I got the distance from the seat to the floor way wrong, but was able to correct it, and camouflage the bad marks.
