This little charmingly painted, wooden windmill is five and a half inches tall, not including the arms. It’s from Holland, but I found it at a thrift store for $3. It looks old, you know, that vintage charm that you don’t see in new stuff. I should try this again perhaps on different paper since my drawing is a little out of whack and maybe the brown paper is way too much brown. I didn’t think it through in my rush to get to the drawing part. A frequent mistake. I like making art but don’t enjoy the planning part so much. I know something’s not quite right when I start thinking– should I cut it out and paste it on something else? Put some color in the background? Is there any way to salvage this sort of cute but not totally effective drawing? I hate when that happens.
