this sketch from a few weeks ago did not have a happy beginning. You know how sometimes you think you've totally and completely ruined a drawing forever, that there's no chance it'll ever look decent, and you might as well start over? And then you let it sit on your art desk for a week or so, while you retreat to your corner and try not to look at it, until one day, you get the courage to re-sharpen those pastel pencils and have another go?
That's the story of "Nina Walks in the Rain." I'm so glad I didn't give up on her!
