Drawing from a Photo: Rim View on Mount Nebo



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I never had much artistic ability, although I have always admired people who could play a musical instrument or create beautiful art. So I became very intrigued when I learned how to create a line drawing from a photograph.

The picture above is the view from behind 'our' cabin atop Mount Nebo in Arkansas. The line drawing below was created from this picture.

Excellent Drawing!! It kinda reminds me of the Pebble Beach area in Northern California, except there is no beach.

Nebo means sky so this is mount sky and we can see why its called that and the view is just delightful for Easter.:)

You do make me nervous- sometimes is looks as though you are in the most precarious positions when you take your photos! I am so glad you are able to release your inner drawing artist. xo teri
