Not a great sketch, but part of the point of EDIM is the doing, not the finished product, right?
I am looking forward to doing this challenge again next year. It's good for me to draw every day, though sometimes it's so hard to get started, when all I want to do is go to sleep!

This walkway is so pretty in every season: tall evergreens and thick shrubs make it feel like a tunnel, and at night the lights cast just enough light on the path but not enough to blot out the stars. It's one of the rare spots in the Chicago suburbs where you can actually see the stars.
It ended up being a much busier month than I thought it would... lots of work from clients, parents visiting. Somehow, despite everything going on, I managed to draw every day in May -- although some of the drawings took more than one day to complete.
The biggest problem? I got hooked on drawing with ballpoint pen, which takes FOREVER! Now that it's June, I finally had a chance to take pictures of everything and post them all.
This particular one is Pitt pen. I meant to add watercolor, but haven't gotten to it yet.
