Look at that view blog post
Artists develop art making skills:
-I had not done a 2nd point view drawing in years.
I added line variation and different designs on all the buildings.
Artists create original art:
-I just did this with a ruler and my imagination so that is why I do not have many pictures. I wanted to add checkerboard into it just for fun.
Artists take risks: I messed up and had to re-do my 2nd point perspective drawings many times because I had so little skill in doing it. I even experimented with fine black sharpie pens.

In the making of marbles.
Artists Reflect: I took a step back and looked at my work each time through every attempt.
The first time I found the prismacolor colored pencils did not blend well enough.
I did not discover the colorless blender magic stick until after I completed the first draft.
I planned to re-do it in pastels but they were too chalky so I went with a pastel pencil.
Artists Solve Problems: When I was using the pastel pencils everything was going great.
When I got more of the piece done I started to realize it still smudged very easily.
There were several spots I had to re-do to get them back to normal.
