EDM 114 Ugly

Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. I searched my home for "Ugly but Sentimental"to fit the EDM challenge this week. I could not pick anything that fit the description. BUT - my husband 'unraked' this small toy tractor from our back yard in the vicinity of our old play scape. Certainly my son's and at least 20 years old now - Broken, very dirty and yet very sentimental to me. It was fun to reflect and actually look at this small snippet of the male childhood world. Pencil and Pen then watercolor in moleskine.

The depth, perspective, and emotion due to the coloring is awesome. Nice.

Very nice drawing of this toy! This is the first "ugly" drawing I've seen. It's such a curious topic. Great job!

A great drawing, Sandy! You have nice details and the coloring is just perfect. But sorry, I still can't see the ugly...I think you're right, when sentiment comes into play, ugly can't be seen.

What a wonderful 'ugly'. It's beautifully done and so timely that you DH unraked it. It was meant to be.

Maybe it was ugly, but your sketch of it is wonderful!
