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?
