Daily Practice ~ Heart Drawing 4.5.14 ~ "Father and Son"

The photo on the cover of the Post is of a father and son high-fiving as they watch the Washington Nationals at batting practice before the first home game of the season.

Last night I dreamed about a green heart with a black edge. I started this drawing by tracing with charcoal the outline of the heart randomly cut from the photo. Choosing colors randomly, too, the heart came out predominantly blue. Sorta disappointing because I wanted it to match my dream. I burnished the drawing with tissue to get the antique look of the dream heart, then decided to pick one more color, without looking, to go over it, and there it was ~ a yellow pencil (yay!). That made the heart green, as it was in my dream
