Columbus Chalkboard Drawing
We have moved on from the War of the Roses to Columbus and the discovery of the Americas. I did this drawing tonight, so it will be a surprise for Anna in the morning when we start reading Columbus by Ingri and Edgar D'Aulaire. It's such a beautiful book, as are all of the D'Aulaire books. Eventually I will own the all of them. Unfortunately they are expensive and I can't find them used, so it is a slow accumulation.
This drawing was a little bit more challenging than the last. Circles are hard to draw freehand; as you can see, mine aren't exactly perfect spheres. My continents aren't exactly perfect either. South America looks pretty good, but North America looks a little wonky. The general idea is there though. What's perfection, anyways?
