EDM Challenge #107: Newspaper , and Surfboards

 The Everyday Matters Challenge #107 was to draw how we get our news. We have The Oregonian delivered daily and it is dropped on our driveway. It's not a very good paper, but it's the only real option in town.








This second drawing/painting I did this week is from a photo I took of rental surfboards in Hawaii last year. It was a very shady spot and I was trying to show the shade without losing the color of the boards. I LOVE the colors of Hawaii - especially the water.

Here in Portland we've had rain, gray skies, and cold. Blech!

Nice work Emma, I think you've replicated the shade very well in the surfboard painting. And the newspaper is very, very good, too. I was perusing your site and really like your salt and pepper painting, and your comments.

Great job on the newspaper and I can feel the tradewinds as I study the surfboards. My mom and sisters live in and around Vancouver, WA I know what you mean about the rain and the blech. Maybe we can connect next time I visit them.
