Sketching in the Galleries: Julian Onderdonk Exhibit

Tonight my vote from last week led us to the Onderdonk Exhibit. I was interested in exploring the landcape in drawing. The challenge was to convert a color painting into a monochrome drawing. After searching the exhibit I found this undated landscape by Julian Onderdonk which was probably of the Texas Hill Country south of Fredericksburg, Texas. I started the drawing by blocking in the shapes with a stick of graphite and came back with my eraser to define the highlights. I finished the drawing with pencil defining the trees, rocks and foreground features.
